The main stone is probably a 3 and 1/2 half carat Burma sapphire.

"As for how much the ring was worth, John said: “I think, at auction, if we sent the stone to a lab and could determine that it was a Burma sapphire with no heat, you might be looking at a value of $25,000 [£18,000] to $35,000 [£25,000] at auction.”
Taken aback by its value, the owner exclaimed: “Oh, wow! Oh, my gosh.”
“Now, if you walked into Tiffany's and had to replace this ring, I don't think you could replace it for under $100,000. It's a really nice ring,” John added in reference to its insurance value.
The guest replied: “Oh, my gosh. Thanks, Granddad! You made my day!”
