Sapphires have been attributed to royalty since the beginning of written history. The color and rarity of the stone signified power and wealth. The idea that they came from the East, was intriguing, as it was a place branded as a treasure chest of gems and riches, most likely because of the traders selling to the West. During the Middle Ages, sapphires were thought to be the divine stone, and shield the wearer from harm and disease. The Edwardian era marked a time of luxury and indulgence. Sapphire rings with diamond accents, like this ring, were considered en vogue.
This antique Victorian sapphire and diamond gold ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England around 1900. A sapphire stone sits at the center of six diamonds that twist around the face, all set in 18 karat gold. The beautiful blue sapphire measures 3.5 mm in diameter and 2.8 mm in depth, and weighs approximately .25 carats. Each of the diamonds are round and Old European cut, totaling an approximately weight of .20 carats. The ring face measures 7.4 x13.5 x 3.8 mm off the finger and the band width is 1.4 mm at the back. It has been fully hallmarked and bears the crown mark for England, the gold purity mark, “18”, and the anchor for Birmingham. This ring is a size 7.75 and weighs 2.6 grams.

He was walking through the shops, searching for something that looked like her. In a small storefront, at garden level, he spotted a stone like no other he’d seen. A hidden gem, a needle in a haystack, that four-leaf clover in a field of daisies. It looked like a blanket of snow over a mountain, each snowflake with its own colorful fire burning, lighting up beneath the sun. It looked like a sunset in Malibu, over the ocean in the West, with rainbow skies and salty air. It looked like her, beautiful at every angle, timeless and everything he was searching for.
