Vintage, French, 18ct Gold, Cornflower Blue Sapphire and Diamond Ring

SKU: ARB-525

£18,500

Sapphire and diamond ring, circa 1945. The sapphire at the centre of this cluster ring is nothing short of extraordinary. Weighing in at approximately 4 and a half carats, its impressive size is matched by a beautiful 'cornflower' blue, for which sapphires from Sri Lanka are famed, with a charming, slightly velvety silk-quality to its inner play of light. Within a border of bright brilliant-cut diamonds, this is a particularly beautiful sapphire and diamond cluster ring, of superb quality and rare beauty.

 


 

Why I love it...
 

We found this incredible ring in Paris, substantiated with defined French hallmarks, the sapphire is the most captivating velvety blue colour. Unsurprisingly, this sapphire came from Sri Lanka/Ceylon. Surrounded by diamonds, this ring is a dream.”
