Victorian Yellow Sapphire Diamond Cluster Ring
Yellow sapphires have held the world at attention. Unlike other similarly colored gems, the sapphire stands alone basking in its own light. Revered by a number of jewelry designers of the 1800s (such as Giuliano), this dazzling sapphire of an estimated 7.5 carats is claw set as the central stone in a classic Victorian era cluster ring of 18k yellow gold top over silver. With a surround consisting of fourteen (14) old mine cut diamonds and a total diamond weight of about 1.3 carats, the gems are set rub over collets of silver creating an intriguing scalloped perimeter.
The magnificent 14k yellow gold shank has sides chased with an ornate floral motif and segues to a linear design which transitions to a smooth as silk unadorned back. Gently tapering shoulders conclude with a comfortable band of narrow girth. Striking at both the first and the last lingering glance.
