Early Victorian Sapphire and Diamond Cluster Ring, Foil Backed 18k Gold and Silver c. 1830

Here is an unusual and very early piece. This ring showcases a lovely rectangular cut blue sapphire surrounded by ten full cut early Old European cut diamonds. The top is set in silver and foil backed, then mounted on an elaborately hand carved 18 karat gold shank.

The stones are very hard to get a weight on as they are closed backed, but the sapphire measures 5.8 mm lengthwise and 4.5 mm across and likely weighs somewhere right around 1 carat. The diamonds measure about 2.5 mm across on average and likely add up to about .5-.75 of a carat. Likely made in England around 1830, it weighs 3.3 grams. It is currently a size 7, but could be carefully sized by a jeweler who uses a laser welder.

A gorgeous early ring with plenty of sparkle, even after all these years!
