An outstanding sapphire ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This breathtaking 14k rosy yellow gold ring has a beautiful eight-prong open mounting. The oval cut sapphire has a weight of 3.34cts and boasts a gorgeous pale lavender-blue tone with amazing clarity. The open mounting allows the stone to be fully engulfed with light, highlighting the beautiful facets of this antique stone. The cathedral shoulders are beveled to complete the simple yet elegant design. The shank of the ring is tapered and smoothly polished. It's a truly magnificent piece and would make a stunning engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6, but could be easily re-sized. When worn, the ring rests approximately 6.5mm above the finger. The tapered band measures 0.5 mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to the sapphire, which is intact and securely set.
