Lion’s Share: Star Sapphire Lion Ring
A star sapphire cut en cabochon boasts a color not likely to be seen often. A gorgeous lilac hue is stupendous in a cabochon of an estimated 12.8 carats. Truly a one-of-a kind setting sets this personal adornment apart from the masses.
One side depicts a realistically modeled and detailed relief image of a male lion and the other that of a female lion. Both of these magnificent royals of the jungle appear to be roaring as though protecting the gem as they would a litter. The male has placed a paw upon the sapphire as a signal of ownership. At the back of the shank their tails cross in unity and affiliation. This ring of 14k yellow gold was originally designed for a man but looks terrific on the hand of a woman.
Date: Circa 1965.
