Antique Edwardian Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 18k Gold, Hallmarked 1912

After grabbing a coffee from the first floor café, she wandered to the highest level of the Jindrisska Tower in Prague. Its gothic architecture took her to a new point of view in a city she thought she knew. She could see Wenceslas Square, a boulevard created over 650 years ago, where celebrations and uprisings occurred. She could even see the Prague Castle, built in 880 AD. She wondered if that faint sound of classical music she could hear was floating to her ears from the Castle during one of their lunch time concerts. On Jindrisska’s sixth floor there is a gift shop where she found herself mesmerized, staring into a case of jeweled rings. The salesman walked over, offering her a price on a sapphire ring, as magical as the city she was rediscovering, that she simply couldn’t refuse. 

This Edwardian sapphire and diamond ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England in 1912. The center sapphire weighs .18 carats while the two outer stones total .14 carats together. The two rose cut diamonds measure approximately 5 points each. Each gem is tucked into a square setting giving this ring an architectural feel. The shoulders of the ring contain simple ornate gold details. It is fully hallmarked with a crown meaning English origin, the number ‘18’ signifying it was created in 18 karat gold, an anchor for Birmingham, and the letter year code ‘n’ meaning 1912. The Maker’s Mark reads, ‘W.L&Co’. The face measures 7.8 mm north to south and is 2.0 mm deep. The back of the band is 3.1 mm wide. It is a size 8.25 and weighs 2.9 grams. 

What is it about sapphires? It’s not as simple as the intriguing color and addicting shine. I think it’s about the history behind the jewel, the way each gem becomes the best friend of its wearer. It’s how it makes you feel. And when sapphires are involved, that feeling is always grand.
