sapphire ballerina ring
sapphire diamond ballerina ring sapphire diamond ballerina ring sapphire diamond ballerina ring
We recently purchased this beautiful ballerina/cocktail ring because of the very nice Blue Sapphire in the center and multitude of diamonds! Said to be an Estate Piece, we do not feel it is very old; most likely within the past 20-30 years (our best guess). The tag had a diamond weight estimate of 2.75cts.

Now that we are back in our main office in Massachusetts, we have been able to examine the Sapphire and Diamonds under our GIA microscope. We would classify the diamonds in the SI ballpark and they appear to be white. The baguettes are a mix of regular straight baguettes and tapered baguettes. The round diamonds are in two different tiers and are of two different diameters, adding more character and interest to this piece.

Using dark field illumination to view the Sapphire, there are a few very light inclusions at the farthest point in the pavillion(bottom) and can only been seen under high magnification - very much what one wants as these inclusions have no visual effect or concern within the gemstone, and will help identify the gemstone as Sapphire as well as of Naturual Origin. It appears that this could also be unheated as the inclusions might look far differently if heated - so another plus for the center Sapphire! Unheated Sapphires have a high premium associated with them. The Sapphire is a nice deep blue without being overly dark and measures approximately 6.3x4.7mm. The color of the Sapphire is not as vivid has shown in some of the photos taken in direct sunlight, but is more similar to the photo above where the ring was photographed under just bright light.

The ring itself is 14kt yellow gold; prongs associated with the Diamonds have been tipped with white gold so they blend nicely with the diamonds and are not noticeable - this is something we would recommend if we were creating a custom piece. In our office about 10ft from a window, one can readily see the Sapphire is a rich blue. Under lights with the proper wavelengths, the sparkle, brilliance, scintillation and dispersion are wonderful. If you are seeking a ring that people will not notice, admire and question, this one is not for you. This will get looks and get noticed...

If one considers the fine Sapphire (and possibly Unheated!), the total weight of the Diamonds, the gold, etc. this is really a great buy at only $3,750 including shipping/insurance. (United States Only - if shipping outside the United States, will be via FedEx/Insured and is an extra $120)

Great Gifts and Presents!

These Alpaca earrings consist of a metal similar to silver. They tarnish with time and yet can be cleaned easily with soap. The inlay is abalone, mussel, colored epoxy or epoxy with turquoise (blue colored inlay as seen in the photos). Since this is natural shell, there is a beautiful mother of pearl look to these and a rainbow of color is displayed. The actual size of the earrings is slightly less than that displayed if your browser fills your computer screen. They are not heavy to wear and the kidney wires are surgical steel for those who might have an allery to other types of metals. We purchased a large quantity some time ago when we were considering opening up kiosks in area malls. We have sold these items at shows and have seen them selling in malls or shops for $28 each. These items would be great for those looking for gifts, selling items in stores, fleamarkets, via the internet, etc.

thai hill tribe bracelet thai hill tribe sales woman
An interesting bracelet purchased from one of the hill tribes (see photo above - this is the actual woman who sold this piece). It is stamped Sterling in Chinese, but it is certainly not silver - many things are marked in China but the mark has no bearing on the actual true identity. This is an item that the woman would have purchased in a city, through barter, etc. In closer examination, this bracelet is related to the years of the Chinese calendar - looking quickly at the piece, one can see an ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, serpent/snake, horse, goat(?), monkey rooster, etc. (htribe-11-01) $30

Obtained some info - and it is very interesting! Mookaite is a stunning multi coloured stone which is found in the Kennedy Ranges near Gascoyne Junction which is about 100 miles inland from the coastal town of Carnarvon in Western Australia. The name "mookaite" is derived from the locality where the rock is dug, namely Mooka Creek. Mookaite is actually a fossiliferous sedimentary rock & it is reasonably common to find cavities left by decomposed belemnite casts or in some rare cases , impressions of ammonites. This was found doing a quick search on Mookaite, but there is probably more information out there...

What is Mookaite? Here is one definition found on line via a Google Search: Mookaite (sometimes spelled Mookite, or just called Mook Jasper) is a colorful Jasper from Western Australia. It is a warm flood of reds, yellows and browns. It is formed as a sediment in erosion zones and as a filler in cracks. In Australia, Mookaite is considered to be a healing stone that bestows strength. It is said to shield the wearer from difficult situations and to connect us to loved ones who have passed away. Mookaite is named for where is was first found ó in outcrops, principally on Mooka Station (a sheep farm of around 700,000 acres), on the west side of the Kennedy Range in Western Australia. According to locals, the Aboriginal word ìmookaî means ìrunning watersî, no doubt in reference to the many fresh water springs that feed Mooka Creek.
