Dating to c.1920-1930, this beautiful, near-antique ring holds a rich, untreated blue sapphire in a cunning setting boasting hearts and flowers!
Taking center stage is the old-cut round Ceylon sapphire, which measures 5.3 mm x 5.23 mm x 3.43 mm and weighs a calculated 77 points! This stone is 100% natural and untreated, and is the MOST luscious shade of deep, royal blue! This magnificent stone displays plenty of "silk" under 15x magnification; these rutile-like inclusions give sapphires their vibrant color. Under high heat treatment, the silk disappears, but this stone pre-dates high heat treatment by over 45 years!
The sapphire is bezeled a beautiful 18k white gold setting, which displays gorgeous cut-work, hearts and flowers on the top and the shoulders of this exquisite jewel (marked 18K; tested)! The bezel of the ring measures 9mm x 9mm. This ring looks absolutely fabulous on the hand, and just look at the depth of color of that sapphire!
This ring has survived 90 years in excellent, all-original condition, without damage to the setting or the sapphire. It is currently a size 5 1/4, but the plainness of the rear of the shank would allow for east re-sizing by a good bench jeweler for little cost. This ring is perfect for everyday wear, or would make a fabulous engagement ring! This ring will be sold with it's GG valuation of $3,750.00 for your insurance purposes at no extra charge.
If you cherish the finest in early 20th-century jewelry, this ring belongs on your hand and in your collection! It would also make a stellar gift for any lady who loves the best in natural antique sapphires, and will be shipped in a gift box. Do not miss this incredible jewel; most dealers would price this beauty at $3000+, but I got a good deal, so why shouldn't you? Do not miss it; up to 90-day layaway is available, and USPS Priority mail shipping is FREE!
