Mid Century 14.19 Carat Natural Ceylon Sapphire Ring, circa 1955
A mega Mid Century sapphire ring. The centre stone – certified as natural and unheated, originating from Ceylon – is a bright swimming pool blue. This most impressive of stones is secured in a four claw setting with scroll detailing in the gallery. A line of five calibré cut sapphires are set in each shoulder, bisecting six round brilliant cut diamonds arranged in a step-down formation. Utterly exceptional.
