Antique Sapphire, Pearl and Rose Cut Diamond Ring, 18k & Platinum c. 1905

I met my dealer friend Julia at the bakery across the street just before the market opened for a snack and chat. It was a fresh, cool, lovely Parisian spring morning, nice enough to sit outside, as long as you wrapped your hands tightly around a steaming hot Café au lait. The fog was burning off and sun coming out while we sat under the little awning talking shop as the electric heater boxes gave off a warm orange glow. We had flaky, buttery chocolate croissants (pain au chocolate) still warm and melty from the oven, oh my. Julia was wearing this ring on the upper part of her ring finger, one of some dozen or so rings she had on in total. I commented that I liked the shape. It left the cafe in my pocket.

Lovely and lively 18 karat gold and platinum ring, likely made around 1900-1910, probably in France, although it's unmarked, or more likely the mark has been sized out over the years. The ring is set with one creamy white half pearl and one rich blue round faceted sapphire. One either side of the beautifully contrasting center stones are wonderful diamond shaped plaques, each set with four lively rose cut diamonds. The ring is a size 4.25 and could be re-size a bit. It weighs 2.1 grams.
