Victorian Pink Blue Yellow Sapphire Diamond Ring

This fabulous ring was waiting for me in the back of a long gallery on Portobello Road. It was snowing outside, the winds bitter, but it was warm and cozy in the little room at the top of the stairs, and it was lined with vendor after vendor. Only the hard core shoppers were out this day, the market was blessedly and unusually bare of the swarms of Saturday morning tourist who normally crowded it’s streets and stalls. Those of us who’d made the trip in the snow chatted, laughed at the weather, drank hot coffee and bought amazing things, like this ring.

This fantastic Victorian ring holds three oval faceted sapphires in a rainbow of color. The center stone is a bright cornflower blue sapphire which measures 7x5x4.5 mm and weighs approximately 1.26 carats. The rich yellow sapphire measures 6x4.5x3.5 mm and weighs approximately .75 carats and the lush pink one measures 6.1x4.3x3.1 mm and weighs approximately .7 carts. The stones are interspersed with small diamonds 2x2 mm in diameter. These center stones would originally have been rose cuts, but they’ve been replaced with brilliant cuts, most likely because small rose cuts can be hard to find. The ring is a size 7.75 US and while it could be re-sized a little bit, I’d have to check with my jeweler for anything over 1/2 a size. This ring measures 8 mm north to south and 17 mm across the face, it sits 4.6 mm off the finger and narrows to 2.2 mm at the back of the band. Made in England around 1890-1900. This ring bears no marks but acid tests as 15 karat gold.

See how I suffer for you, my lovelies? Brrr….
