  • Antique-Italian-Grand-Tour-Micro-Mosaic-Bird-of-Paradise-Ring-18-ct-Yellow-Gold

    Antique, Italian Grand Tour Bird of Paradise Micro Mosaic Ring, 18ct Yellow Gold

    The term micromosaic is used to describe mosaic made of tiny glass pieces, some so fine they will use as many as five thousand pieces of glass per square inch. The interest in classical archaeology and discoveries of ancient sites in the late 18th and early 19th century triggered a fashion in jewelry. Although many images depict classical mythology and scenery, others represented romantic and symbolic themes.  Please view the technical details below.

  • Antique-Victorian-18-Carat-Emerald-Diamond-Ring-Pavé-Set-Boutique-Jewellery

    Antique | Victorian, 18ct Gold, Emerald and Diamond Ring

    This uniquely shaped ring is a very interesting take on the traditional three-stone engagement ring. It features a large table in which the trio of stones are set and its overall brilliance is heightened by the paving of diamonds that lend their sparkle to the central trio. They layout of the stones is also atypical, and ventures away from the classic allotment that features a central gemstone that is accentuated by diamonds. With this piece, the central diamond is accented with two emeralds that originate from Columbia. They emit a vibrant leafy hue, that generously complements the sleek white diamond. The jeweller clearly thought outside of the box, and so this ring would be perfect for someone who enjoys jewellery that strays from the status quo. Please view the technical details below.

  • Double-Heart-Victorian-Burmese-Ring-Pink-Sapphire-Engagement-Antique

    Aesthetic Period | Victorian, Burmese Pink Sapphire Double Heart Ring

    This rare and charming  antique ring is designed as two hearts beneath a crown, it is set with a pair of pink sapphires of exceptional quality that display the rich, saturated pink body colour for which Burmese stones are famed. The motif of paired hearts is an obviously romantic image, with its origins in Renaissance Europe. The paired hearts symbolise a couple in love, the crown above them symbolic of their fidelity to one another. Set with glittering rose diamonds, this ring is a particularly beautiful example of this very traditional motif, and a truly rare survival of its type. This ring has been featured in Vogue Magazine.

  • Victorian-18-Carat-Gold-Sapphire-Diamond-Engagement-Ring-Vintage

    Victorian, 18ct Gold, Sapphire and Diamond Carved Half Hoop Engagement Ring

    The focal point of this late Victorian five stone ring is a well-proportioned old circular-cut diamond weighing approximately 0.80 carats, between two untreated deep blue sapphires totalling approximately 1.40 carats, and a final pair of smaller circular-cut diamonds. This sequence of blue and white stones is spaced with tiny rose-cut diamonds at the corners, giving the front a nearly seamless effect. From the hand-pierced gallery at the sides of the settings to the unusual stepped shank, the extraordinary metalwork shows that attention has been lavished on every detail of this antique engagement ring.  Please view the technical details below.
