Column of Blue: Sapphire & Diamond Antique Ring
Set in 18k yellow gold, a trio of sapphires strikes a visual exclamation point as a stately column of blue radiance stands out among a garden of eight (8) old mine cut diamonds. The faceted natural sapphires (approximately .30 carats, .25 carats and .24 carats each for a total carat weight of about .89 carats) have been oval cut and display great life within their deep blue pools. The sparking diamonds, with a color range of H-I, vary in size and are about .03 points each, bringing the total diamond carat weight to approximately .25 carats. Gently rounded shoulders transition into a smooth band of 18k yellow gold.
The oval measures 1/2 of an inch (1.2 cm) by 3/8 of an inch (0.9 cm) and rises 1/8 of an inch (0.4 cm) off the finger. It has a weight if 3.6 grams. Hallmarked “18ct” and with maker’s mark “W & F.T.”
Size: US 7-1/2 (British O-1/2; Euro 17.75, 56 mm). Can easily be sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
It is in excellent condition; English in origin and dates to circa 1909.
Note: All diamond and gemstone weights and color grades are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
