A beautiful quality ring set with a single round faceted sapphire, of a deeply intense royal blue hue and weighing approximately 0.15ct. Beside the sapphire are two round old cut diamonds, white in colour and with a lively sparkle, each weighing approximately 0.05ct. The stones are bezel set in rex collets, with the top of the settings in platinum, while the remaining head of the ring and the shank are 18ct yellow gold. The shank of the ring is 0.04 inches / 1mm wide, with a delightful twist to it as it connects to the head of the ring.
The ring is in excellent vintage condition the bezel setting once had a mil-grain texture which has slightly worn away. The sapphire has some very slight chips on the facet edges, incredibly difficult to see with the naked eye but visible under 10x magnification. One side of the shank has some heavy scratching. The ring is stamped 18ct on the inside of the shank. Please see the photographs for further details.
