Authentic ring - French work of the 1940s.
Our opinion: Natural color change sapphires, that is to say having received no treatment, to reveal this phenomenon are rare and valuable. Originally from Sri Lankan mines - formerly Ceylon, this sapphire is particularly highlighted by the high quality frame signed by one of the biggest names in French jewelry, Maison Mellerio.
The story of this jewel: This sapphire tank ring was bought during the war by an American soldier. He brought home this typically French ring to his fiancée and asked for her in mariage. 40 years later, this ring was bequeathed to their eldest daughter who chose to part with it recently.
