Ask a question

Here’s a variation of an English late Victorian carved half hoop ring, where the three coloured stones dominate and the four diamonds are accent stones.

This example features appealing and unusually intense bright blue natural sapphires.

The handcrafted and hand-carved 18-carat mount is lavish in its use of rich yellow gold, and deeply scrolled on its substantial sides and shoulders.

The diamonds are good quality too, bringing extra light and sparkle to the overall design.

More robust than most antique gemstone rings, this is one you could wear every day with care.
