Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1900

Striking Victorian oval cluster ring set with spectacular a no heat Sri Lankan sapphire cut into an elongated cushion shape. The stone displays an unusual parti-colour hue, with vibrant blue tones at either end that fade into near colourless at the centre. It's a characterful effect, the stone clearly having been cut to showcase it, reminiscent of watermelon tourmaline albeit with a different colour palette. The stone's surrounded by a halo of rose cut diamonds, and has been certified as natural with no indication of heat treatment and origin Sri Lanka (aka Ceylon). Mounted in 18 karat yellow gold with diamonds set in silver, circa 1900.
