The proportion of these diamonds accentuates and highlights the size and quality of the sapphire and then to add even more charm and character, there are two small antique cut diamonds set on each side of the sapphire, with a further antique cut diamond at each end. These additional diamonds total 0.06 carats and highlight the quality of craftsmanship that went into making this ring all those years ago. Measuring 8.4mm wide at the centre by 20.2mm across, looking at this ring from the side will take your breath away. The hand carved scroll work on the side is as spectacular as the sapphire and again showcases the incredible detail and craftsmanship that is made all the more amazing that this was all made by hand well over 100 years ago. From every angle that you look at this ring you will see that this ring was made to the highest standard and quality with a superb sapphire to match. Stock# T845 Circa: 1890 $32,800
