AWCI CARES Jewelry Raffle
Beauty and Sparkle!

What makes this ladies’ diamond and sapphire ring/pendant stand out from the rest is that its center stone is a rare natural sapphire! To many, the light yellow 6.58-carat round sapphire looks like a diamond.

Surrounding this magnificent sapphire are 98 round diamonds (.95 carats) and 32 natural hand selected calibrated baguette diamonds (1.05 carats) in a style called “The Ballerina.” Channel-set baguettes surround the center stone to form a skirt that resembles a ballerina’s tutu. The tutu effect is best shown with tapered baguettes so the skirt appears to flow out from the girdle of the center stone.

The uniqueness of this ring is in the way it was designed as it can be worn as a ring as well as a pendant. The mounting is 18 karat gold, and it is custom designed by GeVandov Design Studio, Dallas.

This must-have piece is comfortable to wear and will be sized for the winner. It also comes with a jewelry appraisal and G.I.A. certificate. The retail value of this fabulous piece of jewelry is $27,450.

AWCI CARES is a program managed by the Foundation to provide financial support to members of our association in times of financial crisis. Tickets are $25 each or six for $125.
