English Victorian Sapphire and Diamond Band Ring, c.1896
ABOUT THIS RING
All the way from Birmingham, England, circa 1896 (so say the ample hallmarks inside the ring shank), a trio of bright cornflower blue cushion-cut sapphires, set in a striking crisscross pattern, are interspersed by pairs of tiny white twinklers, in this classic late-Victorian band ring. Total sapphire weight, .50 carat. Hand fabricated in 18K rosy-yellow gold. Currently ring size 7 1/2.
