c1880 Burmese Sapphire and Old Mine Diamond Halo Ring
Blue beauty! This gorgeous sapphire is a prized completely natural Burmese stone. It outshines its relatively modest half carat weight with its bright true blue hues! A halo of ten very high grade old mine cut diamonds encircle the sapphire and reflect its beauty. They have a total carat weight of about .40, are near colorless G-H grades, and VS clarity grades. The stones are set in their original antique 14k rose gold basket setting, while the shank must have been replaced in the 20th century with yellow gold. This lovely ring would make a great alternative engagement ring, or a favorite to wear everyday! It is currently a size 7 1/4 and may be easily resized up or down upon request.
