Ask a question

This antique Ceylon sapphire and old mine cut diamond gypsy ring has an almost gothic look, with its simple and strong geometric design.

Handcrafted from 18-carat yellow gold in Birmingham, probably in about 1890, it has been resized and lost its date letter – though it retains the rest of the old hallmark.

This is a great ring to wear every day. Solid and robust, the low settings protect the gemstones.

I have a number of 18-carat gold and gemstone gypsy set rings in stock. They all offer terrific value for money, as well as looking good and being practical.

We provide independent valuations from Sydney’s most respected valuer for all the gem rings in stock, so do check them out if you’re wanting more information about any of them.

Regarding the ring here, the blue is a very pretty mid shade and the diamonds are lively and white.
