A gorgeous and very dispersive example of this classic collector’s gem. The popularity of Benitoite has never waned and continues to increase year after year - this despite the difficulty in sourcing finer stones. The tone is on the lighter side in this stone, a trait that some consumers prefer as it allows a good deal of the dispersion to be visible. The gem is loupe clean and the cutting is a fantastic and fresh US job - this shape works particularly well with this tone and keeps it lively and bright. All this before we mention that the weight is just under a carat - an ideal point to pick up a stone that looks like a one-carat gem but without the consequent price jump.
