Platinum enabled the jewelers of the Edwardian period to create jewelry as feminine and delicate as fine lace. The inherent strength of the metal gave designers an infrastructure which was strong and durable while utilizing less metal that in previous decades.
Showcasing a crisp and striking pale lavender star sapphire of 2.75 carats, the color combination is magical. A grouping of four (4) single cut diamonds (.08 carats total for all 8) and a natural sapphire cut en cabochon are set on each side. Featuring impeccable style with fine mille-grained edge work throughout the setting, the hues and shapes blend seamlessly. Stylized wheat sheaf patterns appoint the entire breadth of the lightly tapered platinum shank. This simply must be seen to be believed.
Date: Circa 1920.
