Make no mistake about it - this ring is absolutely stunning. Featuring a GLORIOUS, natural pear sapphire of a wonderful colour and clarity. In the trade we would refer to this sapphire as cornflower blue, and it's absolutely mesmerising. The claw set sapphire is surrounded by 14 small single cut diamonds that shine beautifully under the light.
The ring is made from 18ct yellow gold and we've put a conservative age estimate of 1950s, but it could be older. Certainly, the shank has been well worn - the hallmarks have been rubbed from wear and band has thinned (ideally, whoever buys this ring will not need it resized). We believe that the sapphire has been removed and re-polished at some point, because it's condition is fantastic given the obvious age of the piece. The claws have been re-tipped and are in great condition.
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 sapphire does 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 show stopping ring that will make her new owner very happy indeed! In fact, she's going to be hard to take off and we may cry when she leaves. The vintage sapphire and diamond cluster ring is supplied in the lovely, vintage heart shaped ring case shown in the photos, along with our tailored gemstone care card. UK delivery is fast and free via Royal Mail.
