You know when you’re walking at twilight and the snow glitters by the light of the moon? Or when you wake up with the morning and you see dust glimmering in the sun’s rays? Or when you’re sitting at the edge of the pier, overlooking the lake, and the water seems to shine on for eternity against the setting sun? Yeah, this ring is kind of like that - but better. It’s a decadent never ending show of sparkle. Honestly, it’s like having your cake and eating it, too.
This phenomenal antique sapphire and diamond ring was handcrafted around 1870. At the center sits a bright blue sapphire, round, faceted, and oh so pretty, set in sterling silver. It measures 7 x 6.65 x 4.5 mm and weighs approximately 1.5 carats. Surrounding this sapphire are 60 diamonds, 30 rose cuts and 30 old European cut stones, all set in sterling silver. The old European cut diamonds weigh approximately 2.1 carats in total. Among the old cuts are a couple of brilliant cut stones that are clearly replacements for stones lost along the way. The rose cuts are patterned between small and larger stones, measuring between .8 – 1.5 mm in diameter. The ring face measures 16 mm north to south and 16 mm across, it sits 8 mm off the finger and narrows to 4.4 mm at the back of the band. An engraved scrolling motif encircles nearly the entire shank which is made in 18 karat gold. This ring weighs 7.2 grams and is a size 4.75 US, it could be re-sized somewhat to suit. There are no marks and it has been acid tested.
The epitome of glamour, right there on your finger, giving the neighbors something to talk about. It’s all in a glance, and this ring will keep them glancing over and over and over.
