ABOUT THIS RING

All the jeweler needed was a bit of blue and a sprinkling of diamonds to create this elegant and easy-to-wear Edwardian ring. A glistening .38 carat navy blue emerald-cut sapphire provides a pop of color in the center of an octagonal halo, pierced to create crisp geometric shapes that shimmer with old mine, European, and single-cut diamonds. The lovely combination is supported by a scalloped side gallery and sleekly tapered shoulders, while milgrain edging adds the finishing detail. Total diamond weight, .28 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum over 18K gold, circa 1915. Currently ring size 5 1/4.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
