Antique sapphire and diamond engagement ring in 18 carat gold

This ring has sapphires that are so beautiful in a setting that is timeless in its design and will so easily suit any finger including making a wonderful and very special engagement ring.

Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold in the early 1900's, the ring is set with three natural sapphires that total 1.42 carats and all display such a fine colour combined with excellent transparency to allow you to see right through the stones. All the sapphires are so beautifully matched in colour and display such a fine blue and are each separated by not one, but two single cut diamonds on each side. These diamonds total 0.04 carats and add the right amount of sparkle to the ring.

Measuring 6.6mm wide at the centre by 16mm across, this ring sits so well on the finger, and regardless of the occasion or finger that it is worn on, there is no doubt that it will always be loved, admired and cherished.

Antique sapphire and diamond engagement ring in 18 carat gold.

Antique sapphire engagement ring set with antique single cut diamonds.

What are single cut diamonds?

These are small diamonds usually around 0.01 carats to 0.05 carats in size. These are often found on the shoulders of rings or surrounding a centre stone for example. While today modern technology will allow for a 0.01 carat diamond to have 58 facets and be a round brilliant cut diamond, single cut diamonds were used from the later part of the 19th Century up until around the 1930’s-1940’s. Commonly found with eight facets on the top (the crown) and eight facets on the bottom (the pavilion) these are sometimes found with total facets between 16 to 18.
