Edwardian 1.18 Carat Natural Burmese Sapphire & Diamond Ring, French, circa 1910
Craftsmanship and design of the highest order. The centre piece of this magical ring is a natural, unheated baguette cut sapphire rubover set in yellow gold, which “floats” within a highly ornate platinum surround. Twenty-eight rose cut and eight old mine cut diamonds are set in the finely pierced and milgrained rectangular cluster, with decorative engraving in the closed gallery. Beautiful “ribbon” shoulders lead to slim D-shape shank. Utterly magical.
Accompanied by sapphire report number 78140-32 from Gemmoligical Certification Services (GCS) stating the sapphire shows no indication of heating, and is Burmese (Myanmar) in origin.
