Navette rings are universally flattering, as they elongate the finger and add excellent finger coverage. This is a particularly fine, and rare, example, set with a fantastic blue-green marquise tourmaline to the centre. The colour of the tourmaline looks like the deep sea and changes from a blue to green depending on the lighting and angle.
This spectacular, antique, stone is in excellent all round condition, despite a few light patches of surface wear, visible under magnification.
The central tourmaline is surrounded by a boarder of twenty two rose cut diamonds, which sparkle beautifully as the ring is turned. The diamonds are lower quality but have lots of life, there are a few superficial nicks to the diamonds, which can only be seen under magnification.
The ring has been crafted from 18ct gold and, although a date stamp is lacking, we would date this piece to c. 1890-1910.

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.
If you have any product altered or resized it can still be returned, however you will then be refunded the cost of the ring, minus alteration & postage costs.
