Art Deco 3.00 Carat Natural Burmese Sapphire & Diamond Ring, circa 1935
The most incredibly beautiful Burmese sapphire ring. The centre stone – a bright, lustrous royal blue – is secured by four square-ish claws in the centre of a magnificently crafted surround. Two pairs of baguette cut diamonds are set either side the sapphire, with a further twelve transitional cuts set in the softly octagonal shaped head of the ring. The fine, hand-pierced under-gallery leads to a slim, platinum shank. This breathtaking ring is of the highest quality.
Accompanied by a sapphire report from Gemmological Certification Services (GCS) stating the sapphire shows no indication of heating, and is Burmese (Myanmar) in origin.
