Here we have a luxurious estate very high carat deep blue sapphire three row tennis bracelet cuff in solid 14K yellow gold.

This fine estate bracelet features a whopping 40.5 carats of gem quality deep blue genuine earth mined natural sapphires.

These lovely sapphires are unheated and completely free of any other color or clarity enhancements or treatments, apart from normal cutting and polishing they are exactly as mined. This is quite remarkable these days and something one only sees in older estate and antique jewelry. Nearly all sapphires in more recent jewelry have been heated sometimes to very high temperatures while coated with artificial coloring chemicals such as berylium or titanium to change their color and clarity. It is also common these days for low clarity sapphires to be heated in molten lead glass to conceal fractures in the sapphire. These heated, berylium treated, diffused color, glass filled sapphires are less desirable and much less valuable than unheated unenhanced natural sapphires like the ones in this bracelet.

This bracelet is 7 3/16" long and 1/2" wide (183 x 13 mm) and weighs 35.3 grams. It is marked 14K meaning solid 14 karat gold, this confirmed by testing.
