Wonderful mid century vintage 14k white gold 72 natural genuine blue sapphires bombe dome statement cocktail dinner ring, size 6-1/4. Measures 13/16" north/south, band tapers to 2.6mm at the back of the ring shank, has a dramatic side profile rise of 1/2". Weighs a sturdy 7.5 grams and the band is nice and thick so it is suitable for a safe and easy sizing either up, or down. The placement of the sapphires in the setting is really unusual and lovely, two sapphires set together in long rows that taper from the center out, forming points at the top and bottom. The center row contains 12, then 10, then 8, then 6, then 4, and then 2 in the final row. All of the blue sapphires are round faceted single cuts and have a delicious well saturated blue color, very vibrant, not dark and murky like many sapphires are. Each sapphire measures 1.5mm in diameter. The contrast of the blue against the white gold is quite lovely. The ring is marked "14K" on the inside of the ring shank. In excellent very well cared for condition with no issues to note. A mid century vintage piece.
