Pink sapphire and diamond ring, circa 1925. Sri Lanka is the most historically famous source of sapphires, and was colloquially known as ‘Ratna Dweepa’, or the ‘Island of Gems’. This 3.45 carat unheated Sri Lankan sapphire displays a floral purplish-pink body colour, and takes centre stage within this lavish early 20th century saddle-shaped mount, millegrain-set with nearly 3 carats of antique circular-cut diamonds. The ring is an incredible demonstration of French craftsmanship of the period. It’s a huge statement piece, it looks amazing in the hand. The sapphire sits centre of this fantastic ring.


Accompanied by GCS report no. 79221-88, stating that the sapphire weighing 3.45 carats is of Sri Lankan origin, with no indications of heat treatment.
