Ask a question

Double halo rings were a delightful fashion revived in the Edwardian period, inspired by earlier Georgian examples.

This French beauty is set with rose cut diamonds, in keeping with the revivalist sentiment.

The Ceylon sapphire is richly saturated and lively. The diamonds are particularly even and well matched, giving beautiful scintillation to the surrounding frame.

It’s wonderful from side on, too. Look at that fine hand piercing!
