Absolutely Sensational!! Undeniably, here is a one-of-a-kind custom made Art Deco era ring that screams 'I'm fabulous' night & day! Dating likely to the earlier days of Art Deco before geometric shapes took over, this showcase piece holds a total of 4.63ct worth of gorgeous blue sapphires & old-cut diamonds. Certified Retail Replacement: $9,550 CAD ($7,000 USD).
Unmarked (acid-tested) 14kt white gold forms the dome shape of this beauty that is topped with dozens of dazzling single-cut diamonds, millegraining and the larger main bezel-set gems. At its center is a well-sized natural oval-cut sapphire measuring 8.15 x 5.30 x 5.30mm, estimated to weigh just under 2 carats at 1.92ct. There are 4 more smaller sapphires on either side of the main sapphire, 2 slightly cushion-shaped and 2 more oval-shaped, adding an additional 1.08ct, for a total of 3ct of gorgeous blue sapphires to the ring. The color appears either Burmese or Ceylon in tone & saturation, however, this is simply our opinion, not fact. The gems are graded 'slightly to moderately included', with 'medium dark, moderately strong blue (GIA B6/4) color'.
Clearly a very loved ring, the natural sapphires, primarily the main 1.92ct sapphire do show facet wear and some abrasions (no chips or fractures), and we've made sure to show this facet wear in our pictures so you know what to expect of this near-to-likely 100 year old beauty. That being said, all our pictures are highly magnified: in person at real-size, the abrasions are considerably less noticeable to the unaided eye (see our hand model image for a real-size image).
Moving on to the GORGEOUS diamonds in this ring, east & west of the main sapphire are 2 big & beautiful antique-cut pear-shaped diamonds. I adore the glow & scintillation that old diamond cuts offer, and these two are beaming with radiance! Warm in color, almost appearing light fancy yellow, these darlings grade K-L color and fine Si1-Si2 clarity, each weighing approximately 0.55ct for 1.10ct in total. They take this amazing ring up multiple notches with their fire power!!
Running all the way around the bottom half of the ring in a wave-like pattern are the 4 dozen (48) single-cut diamonds (0.53ct) that sit like snowflakes among the larger gems. Grading excellent VS-SI clarity and white G-I color, somebody turned the lights on to 'blinding factor' with this ring!
A beautiful and elegant piece, the ring is currently a US Size 5 to 5 1/2 (15.60 - 16.13mm inner circumference), and resizing up or down shouldn't pose issues. A skilled & trusted goldsmith will be able to size her perfectly!
