Victorian 14kt Pink Sapphire & Diamond "Moi et Toi" Bypass Ring
This pink sapphire and diamond ring from the Victorian era (ca1880) is a real beauty! Made of 14kt yellow gold, the ring features two pink sapphires nestled together at the center, forming a stylish "Moi et toi" ("You and Me") bypass design. Surrounding each pink sapphire is a border of delicate rose cut diamonds, adding a soft sparkle! The pink sapphires have a gorgeous natural color and are beautifully faceted, catching the light when worn. Completing the design is a smooth gold band, meeting at either side of the bypass center. A very beautiful and feminine gemstone ring, it would make a special addition to any antique jewelry collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.25, but could easily be re-sized up or down as desired. The bypass design measures approximately 5/8" tall and rests 1/4" high above the finger when worn. Each pink sapphire and diamond cluster has an approximate 8mm diameter. The tapered band measures 2mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting or to the pink sapphires and diamonds, which are securely set and free of chips or scratches. One small accent diamond has been replaced, restoring the piece to its original intact condition.
