Victorian Half Hoop Sapphire Diamond Ring

A beautiful c. 1900 turn-of-the-century dress ring, of elegant half-hoop form set with five deep blue sapphires weight about 1.25 ctw. A glittering halo of alternatingly sized old cut diamonds surround the sapphires, form a pleasing color contrast against the deeper blue tones. This type of color gemstone and diamond halo half-hoop ring was extremely popular between 1890 – 1900s; the simple but classic design represents well the restrained elegance of the Belle Epoque and Edwardian eras. With the exception of one replacement stone, this ring’s sapphires are natural and possess a charming luminousness difficult to find in modern lab-created sapphires.
