• Late Victorian ring – antique engagement rings

    Sapphire – Natural, Faceted, Blue

    This Late Victorian ring has a classic navette shape. It features seven sapphires, totaling 2.00 cts, accented with 30 platinum-mounted rose-cut diamonds, totaling 0.25 cts, and an 18k gold shank. The vivid blue, well-matched sapphires have descending uniform sizes. They set the price, along with the hand-fabricated platinum mountings for the diamonds. (The diamond weight helps, too).
