Here is a truly spectacular and rare 18 carat gold antique five stone pink sapphire ring that is breathtaking and will no doubt always be admired. Hand made in the late Victorian period of the 1890's, this ring is set with five natural unheat treated pink sapphires. Firstly about pink sapphires. Both ruby and sapphire come from the same gem family, corundum, and the only difference between the two is colour. When corundum is any colour other than red, it is termed sapphire and when corundum has more chromium as a trace element, this will cause the stone to be more red, and then named ruby. When it is pink, it is hard to differentiate the difference between a ruby and pink sapphire, however most gemmological labs around the world agree that it comes down to the eye and how we see pink compared to red, and the pink in these stones is just amazing and so incredible to see. And then the stones have not undergone any heat treatment at all. For centuries sapphires and rubies have been heat treated to improve their colour and clarity and this is a worldwide accepted and safe practice. It should be made clear that a sapphire or ruby that has undergone some form of heat treatment is still a natural gemstone from the ground and is not a synthetic/man made stone and the treatment is completely stable. However these pink sapphires have not undergone any treatment at all making them even more exciting. The sapphires total 1.48 carats and are all claw set perfectly to allow the maximum amount of light to enter throughout all of the stones and really make them stand out even more. This ring looks truly incredibly on the finger and would suit any finger and occasion including making a superb and very unique antique engagement ring. Measuring 7mm wide at the centre by 17mm across, this antique ring is like no other and will always be loved, admired and cherished. Stock# ES9152 Circa: 1890 $7,450
