This is a vintage diamond and sapphire ring. It has 24 total stones - 12 blue sapphires and 12 diamonds. The ring is made of 14k white gold and weighs 5.71 grams. The weight of the diamonds on the certificate says either .27 or .37 (I cannot read which it is - it looks like they wrote a 2 and then went over it with a 3) - I am assuming this is the combined carat weight of the diamonds. This ring is a size 9 (nine).

This ring was purchased from a JC Penney in 1978. This was a long time ago when stores like Penney and Sears still carried high quality items and this was part of their fine jewelry line. The price on the diamond certificate says $460 plus trade in, which was a fair bit of money back then (figuring in inflation, that's about $1600 in 2021 dollars).

I am not a jeweler, so I am not trained to grade gemstones, but I did take a long look at the stones with a jeweler's loupe and they appear to be excellent quality stones with a lot of sparkle and fire in bright light. The blue in the sapphires is very rich. This is an attractive ring that has a lot of "bling" factor when worn. 

Refer to the photos. Please keep in mind, I am not a professional photographer and my photos do not do this ring justice. You get the ring, the original presentation box, and the original purchase receipt/certificate.
