Late Victorian 5 Sapphire Diamond Ring 18k Gold

We drove the five hours to the Lake house in one go, the beauty of a hybrid and careful beverage planning. It was dark on the back roads and darker still when we pulled off the gravel in front of the cabin. When we stepped out of the car, I gasped; the stars in the moonless night sky seemed close enough to grab and pull down to play with. We walked in the dark to the lake and watched the reflections of billions of stars dancing on the surface and twinkling overhead. This ring reminds me of that night, that rich blue sky reflected in the lake, the pop of diamonds like stars in the night sky.

This late Victorian ring was hand crafted around 1880, likely in England. The ring is crafted of 18 karat yellow gold and set with five rich blue sapphires. The center sapphire weighs about 1.27 carats, the middle two sapphires add up to 1.32 carats and the outer two are .41 carats, for a total sapphire weight of 3.41 carats. Interspersed between the sapphires are 8 rose cut diamonds. These sapphires are natural, unheated Ceylon sapphires and the ring comes with a full appraisal and a replacement value of $10,300, please inquire if you’d like a copy. The ring measures 7.5 mm north to south and 21.3 mm across at the face and sits 4.3 mm off the finger, it narrows to 2 mm at the back of the band. This size 6.5 ring weighs 4.81 grams. The ring is only marked with a serial number, but has been acid tested as 18 karat gold.
