Antique sapphire and diamond ring made in 1903

Here is a very unique and attractive antique sapphire and diamond ring that will always look so amazing and beautiful on the finger.

Traditionally found with three sapphires and diamonds, this ring that was made in 18 carat yellow gold in the Edwardian era of 1903, is set with two sapphires. It is set with a single cut diamond at each end, but making it even more unique, in the centre are two more single cut diamonds. The sapphires total 0.44 carats, and the diamonds 0.14 carats, and the all are set flat into the setting which itself is so attractive to admire from the sides.

Measuring 6.5mm wide at the centre by 16.2mm across, this is such a charming and lovely ring that will always be loved and admired.

What are single cut diamonds?

These are small diamonds usually around 0.01 carats to 0.05 carats and are often found on the shoulders of rings. 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.
