Edwardian4.25ct Ceylon Sapphire and DiamondRing

$9,000

This exquisite ring was fashioned at the height of the Edwardian period. The masterfully crafted mounting is made in platinum and contains wonderfully rendered decoration: intricate engraving, filigree work, feminine ribbon motifs, a generous sprinkling of fine milgrain and 1.10ctw of old mine cut diamonds. A regal 4.25ct cushion cut periwinkle blue sapphire dazzles in the ring's central setting. This richly saturated, beautifully faceted blue stone hails from Sri Lanka (not so long ago known as the colonial Ceylon). Since at least 500 B.C., the sapphires from this area have been regarded as among the finest in the world. Sapphires are associated with truth and faithfulness, and therefore make a wonderful alternative to the traditional diamond engagement ring. Comes with a GIA certificate for the sapphire.
