Diamond and sapphire ring, early 20th century. This classic five-stone ring is set with a well-matched sequence of deep blue sapphires and circular-cut diamonds, the junctions between three stones cleverly filled with tiny rose diamonds. The metal work is equally well worked in yellow gold, the sides with beautiful hand cut scrollwork leading into an elegantly tapered band. These versatile rings are substantial enough to work well as an engagement ring, but also sit comfortably alongside others as part of a ring stack.
