Art Deco 8.68 Carat Natural Ceylon Sapphire & Diamond Cluster Ring, circa 1940
A dramatic and impressive ring. The natural, unheated Ceylon sapphire displays a bright light blue and is veritably aglow with life and fire. Eighteen transitional cut diamonds surround the centre stone, with the four slightly larger diamonds at each “corner”. The edge of the cluster is set with a fine line of deep blue step cut sapphires, atop a beautifully detailed under gallery to a plain white gold shank
