Edwardian 15k Gold Diamond Sapphire Double Row Ring

A lovely and elegant late Victorian – Edwardian era 15k gold double row ring, featuring alternatively pave-set natural sapphires and old European cut diamonds. The seven 3 mm sapphires display inclusions and slight color variations commensurate with naturally mined antique sapphires (as opposed to synthetic sapphires found on most modern rings), weighing about 1 carat total weight. The five old European cut diamonds (2.5 – 3 mm, ~0.5 ctw) adds a crisp sparkling quality. Overall this is a classic ring with a timeless design made all the more romantic by the old cuts of the stones and the natural quality of the sapphires.
