Caused by iron and titanium impurities, the blue of sapphires is unrivalled in the world of gemstones, and led them to be known as ‘the stone of heaven’ - a holy status that made it a popular choice for bishops’ rings and religious icons. In a deep and highly saturated shade of peacock blue, this remarkable oval sapphire is set within an elegant Belle Epoque mount, within a halo of antique circular-cut diamonds and a stippled millegrain border of platinum, making it a particularly attractive antique example of this perennially popular design.
