18 carat antique sapphire and diamond ring

This ring was made over 100 years ago, and is still not only as fashionable today as when it was made, but is so practical to wear all the time with the sapphires and diamonds set lower into the ring than many others.

Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold in the early 1900's, the ring is set with three beautiful sapphires that total 0.82 carats with two European cut diamonds that total 0.22 carats. The diamonds sparkle to beautifully and compliment the sapphires perfectly and the top of the ring measures 6.5mm wide at centre to 2.6mm at back and is so comfortable to wear all the time.

Even after 100 years have passed since it was made, this ring will continue to look and feel so beautiful on the finger.

Antique sapphire engagement ring made in the early 1900's.

18 carat antique sapphire and diamond ring. This antique sapphire engagement ring is set with European cut diamonds.

What is a European cut diamond?

During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus, and was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. These stones can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone.

The culets became smaller, as it was realised that light could leak out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury with further modifications through the century. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
