Edwardian Platinum/14kt Sapphire + Diamond Cluster Ring 3.00ct center
An outstanding sapphire and diamond ring from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! Crafted in 14kt gold and platinum, this mixed metals piece adorns a stunning sapphire at the center of a sparkling diamond border. The elongated Brilliant Cut sapphire weighs approximately 3.00ct, and exhibits an incredible shade of deep blue that is simply breathtaking in person. A border of old European Cut diamonds surrounds the center stone, forming an incredible sparkling halo. Collectively, the diamonds weigh approximately 0.50ctw, and display estimated H/I range color and VS range clarity. The platinum centerpiece rests prominently above the gold band, and the prongs surrounding the diamonds create a lovely"crown-like" appearance visible from the sides. Completing the design is a smooth gold shank, which is stamped inside with a "14K" purity mark beside a small triangular hallmark. A spectacular ring, it would look incredible worn on special occasions, and could make an exquisite gemstone engagement piece!

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and platinum setting. The sapphire and diamonds are all intact and securely set.
