Victorian 18ct Gold, Large Sapphire and Diamond Marquise Shaped Ring

Rare Find
Written by Olly Gerrish

This beautiful 19th century diamond and sapphire marquise ring makes such a statement, either as an engagement ring or as a dress ring. The shuttle shaped bezel found popularity during the late 1700s, when a trend for classical design had taken hold. Although the style slowly petered out of the limelight by 1820, later European examples are still found, of which this is an example.  Extending 23.5mm up the finger, the bezel is encrusted with bright Old European cut diamonds, with a deep Royal Blue sapphire in the centre. The open-back gallery setting keeps the diamonds bright, coupled with the silver top setting to enhance their crisp colour, and the scroll detail at the shoulders add another little point of interest. It is a regal piece that looks wonderful on the finger.
