In November 2012, a sapphire and diamond ring went under the hammer in Hong Kong. As the room got hotter and testosterone-fueled, deep-pocketed individuals competed to outdo each other, hands kept going up. And up and up and up. The winning bidder paid a final price of $1.56 million.
We found a way of acquiring auction-worthy luxury, without getting beat up in a billionaire's bidding war. Our pear-cut, 2 ½-carat Satias Scienza® Lab-Created Sapphire Ring is a scientifically grown sapphire, crafted in a laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment that recreates the high pressures and heat necessary to create gemstones in nature. Scienza are chemically identical to mined sapphires, and boast a better blue, more sparkle, and virtually zero inclusions. Set in a .925 sterling silver setting, we've surrounded the beautiful blue lab-created sapphire with three dozen white DiamondAura® rounds. Let everyone else fight over spending too much. Surrender to Scienza and enjoy the satisfaction of money in the bank and spectacular stones on the finger!
