ABOUT:

I had a "clean out the jewelry box" moment last week so this is a personal collection release that I have enjoyed wearing the last few years.
Wonderful, sparkly and eye catching French Belle Epoque antique ring in 18k gold from the early 1900s. It has 20 old rose cut diamonds, set in a scalloped halo around the center old cut rectangular deep blue natural sapphire. The shank is in 18k gold with the ring face topped in white gold or platinum as was customary for the period to set the diamonds in a white metal.

The old cut sapphire is rectangular and faceted with clipped corners in the milgrain bezel, and has an open culet and beautiful depth and color.

Antique box not included.

HALLMARKS:
French hallmarks for 18k with goldsmith stamp.

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:

Size 5 1/2.
The sapphire is about 5.5x4.5mm.
The diamonds are 1.5 to 2.2mm each as they graduate in size. Just using estimations I am getting at least 2/3 of a carat - 0.67ctw in diamond weight with the 20 diamonds. The ring face is 14mm by 11mm.

Weighs 2.2 grams.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. Typical antique diamonds with irregular facets and some natural frosty inclusions as these old rough cut rose cut diamonds were cut by hand. There is some build up behind the stones as the bezels are small and hard to get at. No movemeent to any of the diamonds and the bezels look good so this on actually appears to be quite sturdy. The sapphire is in especially nice condition with no nicks and really no visible abrasions, it has a beautiful color, shine and polish. Under lit magnification you can see the natural linear needle inclusions in the sapphire that can occasionally glow similar to a star sapphire but they don't reflect a star design. However the stone is a beautiful deep blue so I could really under detect this under magnification when studying the stone.

A bit of organic surface wear to the gold but shank still looks great. Fun piece to wear as it is so sparkly! But Due to age - please note this is not a mint condition item.

Thanks so much for looking at my items!
