In all our years dealing in antique and fine jewellery, I am not sure we've seen natural sapphires quite like these before. The colour is absolutely astonishing - a deep, rich mesmerising blue that is not too dark nor too light. The blue of kings and queens! All stones are very well matched, and are separated by small rose cut diamonds.
The five stone sapphire ring is made from 18ct yellow gold and is dated from the end of the Victorian era. The hallmarks are only partially visible having been rubbed from wear, but the shank remains thick and solid. The sapphires have likely been re-polished at some point, because the facet edges are crisp and sharp, with some scratching to a few of the faces.
We've had a jewellery report carried out on this piece, for your extra reassurance. The ring will also be supplied with an insurance valuation written by us. The sapphires do show some indications of heating under the microscope - this is a treatment that has been carried out since antiquity and most sapphires on the market have been heated to improve their colour. The diamonds have not been treated in any way.
A glorious antique ring which draws many comments and compliments. The antique sapphire and diamond ring is supplied in the lovely, Mappin & Webb case shown in the photos, along with our tailored gemstone care card. UK delivery is fast and free via Royal Mail.
