Edwardian, 18ct White Gold, Burmese Sapphire and Diamond Ring

SKU: ARB-416


Burmese sapphire and diamond ring, early 20th century. Myanmar (formerly Burma), is most famous as a source of the world’s finest rubies and jadeite, but its sapphires are also of extraordinary quality, and command among the highest prices for sapphires per carat. This ring is set with a beautiful oval sapphire displaying the rich, saturated blue that makes stones of this origin so treasured. The stone’s quality speaks for itself and is simply complemented by antique cushion-shaped diamonds in millegrain-bordered shoulders – a beautiful and very wearable setting for a sapphire of such rarity.
