Art Deco Sapphire Ring
A true Art Deco Ring with incredible 14K cut-work, one Old European Cut Diamond, one Transitional Cut Diamond, and one Synthetic Blue Sapphire. This filigree ring has milgrain cut-work on every side, resembling lattices with leaves. The two diamonds are estimated at 0.10 carat each, (1/5 carat total). One diamond has a chip, which is visible by the naked eye when viewed up close. Clarity (besides the chip) ranges from SI1-SI2. The synthetic sapphire has a wonderful, deep blue color, and is estimated at 1/3rd carat. There is some surface scratches on the facets of the sapphire, which is not uncommon for an almost 100 year old ring.
The first synthetic sapphires were created in 1847 (white sapphires). Synthetic sapphires did not become commercially available until 1877 and were used frequently starting around 1903. By the 1920-1930's, Synthetic Blue Sapphires were common in Art Deco rings. Synthetic sapphires contain the same chemical properties as it's natural counterpart. This is a Genuine Art Deco ring, at a reasonable price.
