Edwardian Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 18K Yellow Gold
A lovely Edwardian (1910) Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 18K yellow gold ring. The two sapphires on the side are natural sapphires and are estimated at .15 carat each. The center sapphire is synthetic and estimated at 1/3rd carat. There are two very tiny spots of color difference in the gold on the sides of the center stone, where the center stone was replaced. Synthetic Blue Sapphires were used commercially starting around 1930, and are common common in Art Deco rings, which means the center stone was replaced sometime in the 1930's or later. The two side sapphires are still the original natural blue sapphires.
In between each sapphire is two single cut diamonds, in the middle of a gold X. The sides of the ring have the tall claw styling, which was common in 1885-1910. This antique ring has that great antique look and lovely vivid blue sapphires.
