AN ANTIQUE SAPPHIRE AND DIAMOND RING
Of cluster design, centrally set with a sapphire within a double border of old European cut diamonds, in 14ct gold, ring size H-I.
The ring presents in good condition overall. The central sapphire is in very good condition and securely set. All diamonds are in good order with several displaying very minor chips. Colours and clarities vary slightly, with all being within a good commercial range (H-I/SI). One diamond appears to be a replacement stone and is single cut and tinted yellow. Gold surfaces are in good order with minor evidence of wear. There is a very minor fracture to the junction of one shoulder, where it meets the basket setting.
