A splendid and romantic oval cluster ring comprising a velvety midnight blue Sapphire (which could well be from the famous mines at Kashmir) framed by dazzling and charming hand cut old Diamonds. Rings of such confident beauty are scarcer to find nowadays and this is a notable piece which dates to the first half of the 20th century. Each of the glittery gems like a trembling drop of water; we have measured the combined weight at 1.25ct. The flower sits close to the hand in a platinum mount with the claws adding prettily to the floral effect, and the 18ct yellow gold nicely fine with a leafy triple split to the shoulders.
Age related wear; there is a chip to one of the Diamonds, visible in image three it is the centre in the three to the left but not visible to the naked eye (our photos magnify to 20x). The cluster head measures 12mm by 14mm. The ring size is a 'K and a half' or US '5.5', but we would alter for free if required.
