This is 14kt White Gold, with a stripe of Yellow Gold in the center. It has an Oval cut Blue Sapphire in the spotlight, which weighs 1.56ct. There are two .20ct round Diamonds on each side of the center stone, and 4 sets of Channel Set .10ct round Diamonds going down the shank on both sides. This is one of my favorite rings and it is also my mothers favorite, she has tried repeatedly to get me to sell it to her over the years LOL.
I got this in 1994, from Jareds Jewelers. They opened their first store in 1993 and they offer custom work. I worked for Sterling Jewelers for years and they own a bunch of stores, under different names. Jareds is one of them, and a couple came in to that store to get a custom piece made. For whatever reason they never came back to get it, and after a time the ring came to Home Office, which is where all returns come. Employees get a discount and we have a store right in the building, and it is stocked with returns and repos but you can also choose loose gemstones to set in a blank ring setting of your choice. I looked at this ring every day for a month before I decided to buy it, and I got a great deal too. When I got sick and had to stop working, I swore I would never buy an expensive piece of jewelry from another jewelry store chain ever again...I know the markup :)
