Art Deco 18ct Gold Synthetic Pink Sapphire Cocktail Ring
A beautiful ring that we believe to be Art Deco up to 1950s in age. The ring has been fashioned from solid 18ct yellow gold, and in it sits a large, emerald cut, pink synthetic sapphire. It's a resplendent ring, and the hue of the gold complements the hot pink of the stone perfectly. The stone is securely set in a four, triple claw setting and the band size is quite small at a UK i (eye). The stone does have some scratches and chips to the facet edges, but they are not overly noticeable without the use of a loupe. It's definitely a ring that's been loved and worn, probably to some fabulous soirees and dinner parties!
Sapphire has been synthesized by man since the 1800s but the process became streamlined and the stones very popular in the early 1900s. It is not at all unusual to find antique and vintage jewellery featuring synthetic sapphire - they were very sought after. In terms of chemical composition, this stone is identical to a sapphire that has been dug from the Earth. The main difference is this one was grown in weeks rather than over millions of years.
