Diana Spencer may have started the trend and Kate Middleton may have sky rocketed this style into the spotlight again recently, however this timeless ring was crafted 3/4 of a century ago in approximately 1938. Plump and juicy are the best words to describe the blue sapphire and diamonds in this fabulous ring. They ooze quality, luxury, exclusivity and substance. The deep royal blue emerald contrasts spectacularly with the the brilliant white diamonds. The halo of diamonds is rich and substantial.
The ring has been brilliantly refurbished. A new shank was added this year so the gold is thick and strong. It is in excellent condition which reflects the superior craftsmanship of the jeweller who made it originally and the jeweller who did the refurbishment. Computer screens all display different variations of colour but rest assured that the sapphire is deep royal blue; almost indigo. As Kelly Osborne would say: "I'm obsessed with it".
This ring is big enough to be a statement cocktail ring or an exceptionally impressive engagement ring. The ring is very comfortable to wear and beautifully balanced. The underside of the ring is open and super easy to clean (if you are like me and never take your rings off they do need the occasional rinse to bring them back to full sparkle). If you have big hands it will look perfect and if you small hands it will look enormous.
Most items in my store were selected because they contain old cut diamonds. For me they are like ‘love at first sight’. Not bland and sterile like modern cut diamonds. Old cut diamonds are individual with deep sparkle and big wide facets that bounce rainbow colours. They have a special elegant sparkle reflecting the light that has moved within them for decades. Old diamond cuts return light in colourful rich blocky patterns while newly cut stones return light in needle like shards. For me its no competition and the old cut diamonds win every time.
There is a small nick to the crown of one diamond which is to be expected in a ring that is nearly 75 years old. The nick is not visible to the naked eye; I eventually found it under x 10 magnification. The Sapphire is in pristine condition.
