In 1908, the remarkable Blue Heart Diamond was found at the Premier Mine in South Africa. This 30.62-carat, heart-shaped, brilliant-cut blue diamond was faceted by French jeweler Atanik Eknayan of Paris between 1909 and 1910 from a 100.5-carat piece of rough. The stone was purchased by the French jeweler, Pierre Cartier, in 1910. Cartier then sold it to Mrs. Unzue of Argentina in a lily-of-the-valley brooch in 1911.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Costume Jewelry I received this, it's too big and looked like something from a gumball machine. I returned it. 04-06-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disapointed... not for me...Returning it :( Ring looks too fake. I realize it is not real the real thing but it is a poorly executed imitation. I was hoping the blue stone was glass or crystal instead of plastic. The setting itself is pretty and the surrounding clear stones are nice but the big plastic blue stone makes it look like a trinket. 11-23-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful ring I have always thought anything 'heart shaped' looked fake but this ring has changed my mind.. This is a beautiful saturated cobalt blue sapphire looking stone ring with a unique classy setting and small surrounding diamond looking stones. True to size 6 for my right hand ring finger. It reflects light and sparkles alot. The only downside is that I wish it was bigger because I love bold rings and this ring is smaller in size than I thought but It is a keeper. 08-09-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by On the Fence........ I had looked at this ring online before but hesitated at paying the full price for a costume piece. Still, I like the history behind the original ring, so when I happened on it again as a Lunchtime Special, I decided to take a chance at the reduced price. When I received it, I was disappointed in some respects. First, the size of the stone was a little overwhelming on my small hands. The band of the ring looked like an inexpensive costume piece. The ring was somewhat top-heavy and turned to the side frequently. Most importantly, I felt that the value for the total price was only fair to average. That being said, I did decide to keep the ring. The stone was nicely cut and had a rich blue color. The small stones were clear and sparkly and set tastefully around the heart's perimeter. The band is not really visible when wearing the ring. Overall, it is a bold and colorful ring that I will wear occasionally as a "fun" piece, never thinking to pass it off as a blue diamond. The ring has presence and I feel certain that others will notice it and enjoy seeing it. I think I paid a little too much for it, but it is not enough of an issue for me to return it. 05-23-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bling bling! Beautiful ring, rich blue color however if you have petite hands its way to big. 01-27-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Blue This is the first time I ever had an order lost in the mail. QVC Customer Service was awesome, and they sent out a replacement order. My ring was well worth the wait. I have not had any trouble with my ring so far, and the blue is gorgeous. If you look at the ring, the blue is a darker blue, but if you look from the side, the blue reminds me of the ocean. Living in Florida, I am drawn to beautiful blue colors anyway, and my ring has not been disappointing at all. The metal has not bothered my ring finger, either, and I am very sensitive to base metals. I would recommend this ring. 10-16-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful color, but.. I had to send this ring back. The size of the setting is so big, and I mean BIG, that I'm unable to wear it. The heart itself covers all the way to my knuckle and side to side. It is just too big & ' costumey,' although the color & ring itself is very pretty. 08-08-12
