Lab-Created White Sapphire Ring in Sterling Silver

$99.99

3 questions please

(1) How durable is this lab-created sapphire ring, will it scratch? Obviously, I will not purposely scratch the stone, but does it scratch easily? (2) What is the best way to clean this ring? Please provide materials and soap examples; and (3) How many carats is the center stone? What does 10x10 mm equivalent to with this cushion round stone, e.g., is it 2 carats, 3.47 carats, and etc.? Please specify the exact carats. Thanks!

The stone itself appears (in my experience of having it) to be very durable. I would be more concerned with the ability of sterling silver to handle the weight of the stones. I have this ring and have twice had to have the biggest side stone on one side replaced. Over time, the ring seemed to loose it's round shape, and bend, which caused the side stones to come unset. I always take my jewelry to Helzberg, they know the best way to clean them and they inspect them which allows you to get a heads up if something it getting misshapen. The cleaning is free so I would suggest just doing that. This size center stone is the equivalent of a 6 carat diamond! :) I hope that helps!

Can I purchase this ring in a bigger size? Maybe a 9.5 or 10

Asked by: LexiRae
Do to the unique design of this ring the largest size that it is available in would be a size 9. If you were to size beyond this recommended size, it would cause the ring to lose its integrity. You may also experience stone loss issues. Still have further questions? Contact one of our Jewelry Experts at 1-800-435-9237.

Sapphire

Sapphire, the September birthstone, has been popular since the Middle Ages and, according to folklore, will protect your loved ones from envy and harm. Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven, while commoners thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings. Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or violetish blue, as well as various shades of pure blue. The most prized colors are a medium to medium dark blue or slightly violetish blue. Sapphire is a variety of the gem species corundum and occurs in all colors of the rainbow. Pink, purple, green, orange, or yellow corundum are known by their color (pink sapphire, green sapphire). Ruby is the red variety of corundum. White sapphires can appear to be just as natural as a true diamond offering the same beauty and lifelong value.
