Vintage French Sapphire Retro Ring in 18k Gold, Engagement or Wedding Band

When I go to Europe, I always go shopping in London. Sometimes I also go to Paris, other times to Amsterdam, and once in a happy while, I visit the diamond capital of the world, where jewelry shops lines the streets and chocolate stores cap the corners, Antwerp.

I bought this fantastic ring in Antwerp, up the winding stairs of my friends Atelier, up to the top floor where sunlight streams in through skylights making diamonds sparkle and sapphires shimmer. This ring is French in origin, hand crafted in 18 karat gold and set with a single soft blue oval faceted sapphire. The stone measures 7.6 x 6.7 x 3.4 mm and weighs approximately 1.4 carats, it has some slight feather inclusions that are only visible with enhanced magnification. The ring is marked on the back of the shank with the French eagles head and a makers mark. It measures 10 mm north to south and has a low profile, sitting 4.1 mm off the finger, it narrows to 3.5 mm at the back of the band. This ring is a size 7.75 US and could be re-sized to suit, with care being taken to preserve the marks. It weighs 9.9 grams, a weighty and wonderfully comfortable ring. This ring would be equally suitable for a man or a woman.

This Retro ring was made around 1945-50 and would make a fantastic and unique wedding band or engagement ring.
