A truly sensational Vintage (Circa 1940-50) 18 Carat Gold, Platinum Set Natural Sapphire & Brilliant Cut Diamond Three Stone Ring. Central is a stunning Blue Oval cut sapphire set to a platinum mount and sits between two bright, white brilliant cut diamonds.
The mount is crafted onto chenier shoulders leading onto a plain yellow gold band which is stamped 18CT PLAT and with an inscription of 1957. Both the sapphire and diamonds are of a very high calibre with the sapphire being transparent when held to a window and having very few inclusions when examined with a loupe. Equally the diamonds are exceptionally white and I can find no inclusions with a 10 x loupe both are earth mined and natural. The Sapphire diameter is approx 6.5 mm x 5 mm - Calculated at approx 0.94 carats. The diamonds are each 3.5 mm diameter with an estimated Total Carat Weight of approx 0.34 carats.
The diamonds are both Brilliant cuts and are well matched in colour and clarity. They are very white and lively providing excellent refraction/fire under all light conditions.I can see no inclusions with a magnifying loupe and estimate the clarity to be VS and colour to be H. The Sapphire has excellent clarity and colour unlike most sapphires which tend to be opaque and almost black; This has good blue saturation and totally transparent when held up to the light with just two one small crystal inclusion found when examined under magnification. All of my photos and videos are shot using natural light only. (Window light) This is to show diamonds & coloured gems true natural colour. The use of electric lights in particular flash/strobe lights in photos tend to bleach diamonds an artificial white and enhance the saturation of coloured gems whilst also potentially hiding any eye visible inclusions. As always, the diamonds have been tested for authenticity with two electronic diamond testers. The ring as a whole is in excellent used condition. There are no signs of wear to the back of the shank or mount.
All of the stones are all securely set. The sapphire has just a few nicks to the facet junctions not visible to the naked eye. The diamonds are also in good condition with no cracks scruffs or nicks found when examined with a magnifying loupe. Estimated Diamond Colour = H.
Estimated Sapphire Grade = A Colour - VS Clarity. Ring Size = R (Re-sizing available please contact me).
