Ask a question

A sapphire and diamond 18-carat gold carved half hoop from the late Victorian period.

I particularly love the rich detailing on the sides of these rings. A craftsman used a graver tool to carve into the sides of a solid gold mount.

This became a hugely popular style in England. Rings were crafted with countless combinations of gemstones.

The vivid blue Ceylonese-type sapphire and quality old-cut diamonds in the substantial handmade mount in beautiful condition complete this pleasing English ring from about 1890.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold
• Round native cut mid-deep blue natural sapphire estimated at 0.60 carats
• Two old European cut diamonds estimated to total 0.60 carats, graded set as H/SI-pique
• Comes with an independent insurance valuation for $6,750
• Size approximately 6 3/4 or N, but easily resized free of charge
• Weight is 3.7 grams
• In excellent antique condition

• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antique boxes are not included) 

• Note: some of the other antique and vintage sapphire and diamond rings are for sale separately (others have been sold)

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
