This ring originated as an Edwardian era stick pin (circa 1910) but has been recently converted by me into a ring.

The front portion of the ring is crafted in 14K yellow gold (the pin portion was hallmarked 14K with the Hans Brassler hallmark - however one of the stones in the setting had been roughly removed, damaging the setting, it could not be salvaged for repair), and a 14K vintage yellow gold band has been added to the stick pin head.

The round-cut bezel-set Montanan blue sapphire measures approximately 4 mm, and has an estimated weight of 1/3 of a carat.

The front of the ring measures 0.41" from top to bottom, with a band that increases slightly to 0.08" at the very back. This piece weighs 2.9 grams and is approximately a size 6. (It no longer fits perfectly on a mandrel, due to it's design.)

Condition is very good, with no damages.

*** Having dealt in antique & vintage jewelry for over a decade now, I find myself with growing pile of pieces for repair. Unfortunately doing repairs, though a necessary part of my business, can become a dull task, so to allow a little fun & creativity in my days, I am upcycling and converting some of the old into new. This is one of those pieces.

I take pride in my work, so I have done my best to ensure clean & well detailed finishes to my pieces - both front and back. I provide multiple photographs so that the buyer can see the quality of workmanship that goes into each piece I construct. These aren't 'cut and paste pieces' - I intend for them to endure a lifetime of wear, with the hopes that they will eventually be passed down to the next generation - just as the treasured heirlooms they consist of were intended to be. ***
