Retro Platinum No Heat Ceylon Sapphire + Diamond Ring 3.93ct
An exquisite sapphire ring from the Retro (ca1940s) era! Crafted in platinum, this fantastic piece holds a stunning natural sapphire at the center, framed by sparkling diamonds at either shoulder. The Ceylon (Sri Lankan) sapphire has an exact weight of 3.93 carats, and is beautifully faceted into an old Cushion Cut stone. It exhibits a luscious cornflower blue color, which is natural, and displays no indications of heat treatment. Resting on either shoulder is a tapered Baguette Cut diamond which perfectly compliments the vibrant center stone. An open airline design is visible below the centerpiece, and a smooth platinum band completes the design. The shank is stamped "10% IRID PLAT" along side a small maker's mark. Accompanying the ring is a Prestige Gemstone Report issued in April 2018 by AGL (American Gemological Laboratories), which describes and confirms the sapphire's stated characteristics. A spectacular vintage ring, it would look exquisite worn on special occasions, or could make an extraordinary gemstone engagement ring!

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting. The sapphire stone and all of the accent diamonds are intact and securely set.
