Art Deco 1.64 Carat Natural Purple Sapphire & Diamond Ring, dated 1927
A sublime vintage sapphire ring. The central sapphire – certified as natural and unheated – displays the ideal shade of purple; rich and regal, but still full of light and life. The centre is surrounded by ten white and bright old cut diamonds in a coronet setting, leading to a slender yellow gold shank. Simply lovely. With (admittedly faint) hallmarks with date marks from 1927.
Accompanied by a sapphire report from Gemmoligical Certification Services (GCS) stating the sapphire shows no indication of heating.
