This stunning antique Sapphire and Diamond boat ring was made during the Edwardian era and is crafted from rich buttery 18ct Yellow Gold.

The ring features three gorgeous natural Sapphires of the most beautiful deep Royal Cornflower blue colour, and the Diamond spacers lend an unmissable sparkle to the piece which immediately draws the gaze in any light.

We love the openwork setting which is typical of Edwardian design. It lets light flow through the piece and demonstrates the skill and craftsmanship that went into making this extraordinary ring so beautiful!

CONDITION: 

EXCELLENT:  This beautiful Sapphire and Diamond boat ring is in lovely condition throughout. The band is nice and thick and only has minimal wear to the back of the band. Inside, the hallmarks are starting to become slightly less defined in keeping with the age of this antique piece. The setting is perfect, which is rare in a piece this old as they often get rubbed by other rings when worn as a stack. Fortunately, this ring has been treated with care!  The stones are very clean, with only the very mildest softening of the facets on the main Sapphire; practically invisible to the naked eye.
