Art Deco Platinum Star Sapphire & Diamond Ring
A beautiful star sapphire ring from the Art Deco (ca1930) era! This alluring ring holds a large star sapphire cabochon at the center of a feminine platinum mounting. When turned in the light, the grey-blue stone reveals iridescent flashes at the center, forming the rays of star-shaped pattern, appearing as though lit from within. The iridescent quality is difficult to capture in a photograph, and is less noticeable in the images, making the star's rays the strongest when viewed in person. Surrounding the center stone is a border of sparkling diamonds that form a gorgeous halo. At either side of the centerpiece are two sparkling baguette diamonds, which rest atop the cathedral-style shoulders. Completing the design is a filigree wirework motif at the base of the stone, and smooth, tapered band. Stamped inside the shank is "IRID PLATINUM." An enchanting ring, it looks very flattering when worn and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 5.75, but could be resized if desired. The oval star sapphire and diamond centerpiece measures 5/8" tall and 1/2" wide. The top of the cabochon rests approximately 1/2" above the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting, or to the star sapphire and diamonds, all of which are intact and securely set.
