Antique Victorian Diamond & Sapphire Band Ring, 18k Gold Hallmarked 1900

At Portobello Road market on a Saturday morning the gallery that houses my friend Amy and a lot of other really wonderful antique jewelry dealers get really really full, really really fast. So, when I come to town Amy and I meet there early, really early. Often we are the first ones, bleary eyed and coffee (for me, tea for Amy, she's English after all) clutched in hand. If it weren't for the pastries there is no way we'd make it. I dig through her box of goodies, handing the rejects to her one a time which she promptly displays in her case, filling it as we go. I closely guard my pile of chosen treasures lest she thoughtlessly grabs from the wrong pile (hey, it's happened!). We have done this so many times over the years it feels like an old habit. I love it. I came across this ring there, it went right in my 'must have it' pile. 

Hand crafted in 18 karat gold, this ring has an unusual and lovely double ionic scroll and column detailing to the sides and an ultra low profile. Set with four mine cut diamonds (.15 ctw) and one step cut cushion shaped sapphire (.15 ct) of a bright royal blue. This ring is currently a size 8.5 but could easily be re-seized up or down a few sizes. It is fully hallmarked as having been made in Birmingham, England in 1900 out of 18 karat gold, it weighs 4 grams. Worn to a wonderful soft patina that glows like, well, gold. 

Hands off, Amy, this one's coming home with me. For you. It would make a fantastic engagement ring or wedding band.
