SOLD: Ceylon sapphire and diamond three-stone ring, circa 1960

Ask a question

Here’s a wonderful example of a sapphire and diamond three-stone ring. Handcrafted in platinum, it features three quality stones.

The oval natural unheated Ceylon sapphire of about 2 1/2 carats is wonderfully even in colour – from every angle the hue is vibrant and lively.

It’s flanked on both sides by a white bright round old European brilliant cut diamond – together these total just over 1/2 a carat.

The bezel setting offers an uncluttered outline, while the millegrained surround adds delicacy.

This is robust enough for everyday wear yet light and pretty in appearance.

Sapphire and diamond rings of this quality and appeal are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
