Art Deco 6.67ct Ceylon Sapphire Cocktail Ring

$4,250.00


Description

DATE: Mount - Art Deco, c.1920. Stone - Edwardian, c.1910

It took a couple of years, but we finally found the perfect mount for this (wonderfully im)perfect no heat Ceylon sapphire. It was worth the wait. And the best part: the two are more-or-less of an age. The stone is a 6.67 carat Sri Lankan sapphire, mined and cut circa 1910 it’s a slightly asymmetrical “native” cut (meaning it was cut on location at the mine) and displays an unusual purple-blue colour - vibrant and with excellent clarity. The mount is French, circa 1920, and you’d have thought it was crafted especially to house the stone. It’s crafted in platinum and 18k white gold, complete with the original brilliant cut diamond halo. If you’re looking for an engagement/cocktail ring with a bit of a backstory, this is it.
