This is a beautiful antique sapphire and diamond ring dating from the Edwardian Era and hallmarked for 1908

DETAILS
This classic gypsy or boat shape ring was made in England and has a London assay stamp for 18ct gold. The rich yellow gold is set with and oval deep blue sapphire to the centre and a pear shape sapphire to each side. The pear cut is most unusual, I don't think I have seen a ring of the date uite like it, most are set with round or oval stones. Between the sapphires are a pair of old mine cut diamonds.
The sides and shoulders have scrolled hand carved engraving which is always such a nice extra detail!
A beautiful ring perfect as a wedding band, anniversary ring or stacking ring!

GEMTONES : Three natural sapphires. Four old cut diamonds.
HALLMARKS : Crisp clear English Hallmarks : London. 18ct. date letter N for 1908
FINGER SIZE : UK : K or US : 5 1/8. Can be sized within the limitations of the half setting.
MEASUREMENTS : Side to side the setting is 19mm, width 6mm. Rises 5mm from finger. Band is 3mm wide on lower half.
WEIGHT : 4.4 grams
CONDITION : This ring is in very good antique condition. There are no repairs and the setting is holding the stones securely. The centre sapphire has some age wear abrasion to the facet edges which isn't noticible to the naked eye. One diamond has a surface reaching natural. The ring will be presented in a lovely new presentation ring box. Old box not included.

⭐️ To capture the fine detail and beauty of my rings many of the photos are taken with a macro setting but the full hand shot and video should help give a realistic scale of size. My hand is the model and my ring finger is J 1/2 (US 5) and middle finger M 1/2 (US 6.25)

All our stock is kept securely off site so we ship with 1-2 days of receiving the order.

All of our jewellery comes with a new presentation box. Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly, recyclable packaging and pack with care so your item arrives in perfect condition.

Is your jewellery certificated?
In the UK most antique & vintage diamond rings & jewellery do not come with certificates or appraisals. I have 30 years experience selling jewellery and all our items are cleaned, checked and tested by jewellery specialists and gemologists.  Some pieces are appraised by a registered independent National Association of Jewellers Appraiser & Valuer and this will be clearly stated on the listing  : Certificated Rings
