Here is a spectacular antique sapphire and diamond cluster ring set with a magnificent 2.40 carats untreated natural sapphire.
Sapphires have been heat treated to improve the colour and clarity for well over 600 years and this is a perfectly accepted treatment for indeed both sapphires and rubies and should not be confused with synthetic sapphires or rubies.
However to get a sapphire that is over 1 carat in size that has not been heat treated in any form makes them quite sought after as is the case with this sapphire in this ring.
The sapphire measures 2.40 carats and has a wonderful blue colour to it and looks stunning in the day or night.
The size and fact that this sapphire is untreated makes it simply spectacular.
However to add to the allure of this ring are the 10 diamonds surrounding the sapphire and the diamond on each shoulder. The diamonds total 1.54 carats and add so much sparkle to the ring.
Hand made in 18ct yellow and white gold around 1910 this is a stunning ring for any occasion and would make a spectacular sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
