A beautiful deep teal green sapphire ring c.1900. The centre stone at first glance looks to be a very deep greenish-blue, almost black, but as soon as it catches the light you can see the most incredible ripple of bright greens and blues, like the deep sea on a sunny day. The natural gemstone is estimated as 3.15ct in weight, with a nearly 10mm spread and a desirable antique cushion cut. The stone is offered in good overall condition with only some light surface wear noted to its table facets.
Surrounding the sapphire is a halo of sparkling old mined cut diamonds totalling an estimated 0.84ct in weight. Every stone has been painstakingly hand faceted, meaning each slightly different from the next, but somehow they look like they should have never been apart. The antique diamonds are bright and white with lots of fire as they are turned in the light with no eye visible inclusions or wear, although there are a few very small nicks to one or two stones visible with a loupe.
The stones are set into a low-profile halo that, whilst sizable, sits low to the hand for maximum comfort. The ring is finished with delicate double shank that forms a split shank at the head of the ring, quintessential of the Edwardian era.
Please note that whilst the ring has a 750 stamp to the inside this is a modern addition and not a reflection on the age of the piece.

We offer a ring re-sizing service by our antique specialist for a small fee, starting at £40.
Most of our rings can be resized, but if they can’t we will stipulate this in the description.
As a rule we will only alter a ring by three UK sizes. If you would like to size a ring more than three UK sizes (either up or down) please contact us on a case by case basis and we will try and accommodate you as best as possible.
We do not offer refunds on altered pieces, so please make sure you love your new piece before you purchase.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
