Luxury Design, Past & Present
A bold, cool blue sapphire is expertly-cut into an oval/cushion shape, held in a sturdy prong setting within the face of this diamond ring. Two concentric borders of diamonds emanate from the sapphire center, each in a round-brilliant cut that perfectly reflects light in a vivid fashion. Bold, starkly-chromatic platinum holds the whole piece together, with a heightened ring table, for a lovely side-gallery view.

Condition: The blue sapphire is cut well, with a nice brilliance that shows off the blue hues of the stone, without obscuring it in shadow. The sapphire shows only minor internal inclusions that are typical of natural sapphires, without any large or obvious inclusions that would detract from the stone’s brilliance. The cut of the bottom culette is slightly rough, however, and this can be seen when under microscopic visualization. The diamonds are all well-cut, with a nice brilliance and shine, and are all set well. Please see above for color grading and clarity on the diamonds. The platinum setting and body of the ring is detailed and sturdy, with only the most minor surface age wear.
Please note that antique and vintage pieces almost always have minor and typical age wear; this is to be expected, and should not be considered detractory.
