This exceptional piece found its way to us as a stick pin, but we thought it was destined to be a ring, so have lovingly converted it with the addition of a simple yellow gold shank.
The head of the ring centres around a charming old mined cut diamond in a rare octagonal cut. The hand faceted diamond packed with character amidst its chunky facets and large open culet. The stone is slightly warmer in colour, which is common of genuine antique stones, with a high clarity grade, despite a small chip to one corner visible with a loupe.
Raised slightly above the rest of the ring, the diamond is set in a white gold bezel that contrasts the yellow gold the rest of the piece is formed from. Surrounding the diamond is an intricate halo of natural sapphires with the perfect cornflower blue tone. Each sapphire has been painstakingly hand cut specifically for this piece, fitting together perfectly to form a continuous gemstone boarder around the diamond. Overall, the sapphires are in good condition with only a few light areas of wear to note.
This is a small but mighty piece, exquisite in craftsmanship and the perfect piece for any jewellery lover.
