This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE RING that was made in the RETRO style during the 1940s. It is HANDMADE from 18K PINK GOLD with PLATINUM for the diamond settings. The ring is set with 18 OLD MINE CUT DIAMONDS of H-I-J color, SI clarity that weigh approx. .65 ctw. These diamonds are in the .03 - .05 ct. range each. The ring is centrally set with 1 synthetic BLUE SAPPHIRE that weighs approx. 3 ct. This sapphire is an EMERALD CUT of the finest quality that is set horizontally. Synthetic colored stones were typical for the period.
The band of the ring has a shingle design and the gold has a very unique and beautiful RED PATINA on it. This can be polished for a more subtle pink shade, but I will leave that to the buyer to decide about. The top of the ring measures 5/8” by ½” and it sits almost ¼” high. The ring size is a 6 ½ and the total weight is solid feeling 12.6 grams. GORGEOUS BLUE…GREAT STYLE…ONE OF A KIND...THE PERFECT RING IF A NATURAL SAPPHIRE IS NOT IN YOUR BUDGET!

*A NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOGRAPHY – Taking pictures of diamonds to be displayed on a computer screen can be difficult, often resulting in the diamonds looking dark (especially rose cut diamonds) when in reality they are not. If you are looking at any of our pictures and feel that the diamonds look dark, please refer to the description of the item that states the accurate color and clarity of the stones.
Also, jewelry and/or diamond grading is done under 10X magnification. When you super-size our photos you will see the item in 100X magnification. Please be aware that you may see things that cannot be seen with your eyes or a jeweler’s loupe. Sometimes these magnified images can make the item look distorted or appear to have problems when in reality it is fine. I list only high quality pieces and avoid those with problems or in need of repair unless it is described as such in the listing. If you are seeing something that you are not sure of, please inquire about it.
REFUND POLICY: The buyer has the right to a refund should the item not be suitable. The item must be promptly returned in its original condition without damage, alteration, repair or signs of wear when examined under a 10x jewelers loupe. Buyer is responsible for return shipping fees unless we have mistakenly misrepresented the item.
