Sometimes, I wear this one around the house just to feel fancy for a minute. I set the mood with some Peggy Lee on vinyl and a Spanish rosé on ice. The vanilla candles are lit and soon I’m unleashing my inner Baby Houseman. I’m reminded why life is worth living - good music, great wine, and glimmering jewelry.
This antique Victorian sapphire diamond gold ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England in 1897. A pair of round sapphires are surrounded by 15 Old European cut diamonds all set in 18 karat gold. Each sapphire weighs approximately .13 carats and each diamond weighs approximately .02 carats. The ring face measures 7 mm north to south and 12.5 mm across, it sits 4.1 mm off the finger and the band narrows to 1.3 mm at the back. It bears the crown mark for England, the gold purity mark, “18”, the anchor mark for Birmingham, the date letter “x”, and it bears a faded maker’s mark, “&SONS”. This ring is a size 7.25 and it weighs 2.3 grams.
This glittering stunner would make an exceptional engagement ring, if that’s what you’re looking for. Of course, there’s always the chance you might just want it for yourself and, darling, there’s nothing wrong with that.
