For over 30 years, our specialty at Market Square Jewelers has been sourcing the finest of gemstones in gem markets and at gemstone mines around the world. Once acquired, we set these sapphires and emeralds, these garnets and spinel, into the most beautiful antique and estate jewelry we can find.
Occasionally, we are fortunate enough to acquire a truly unusual and valuable gemstone, and then to have the single, perfect estate mounting to hold this natural treasure.
This is one of those rings.
We started with the gemstone: A sapphire of incredible quality, in shades of cobalt blue and indigo purple. This sapphire was mined in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, the source of many of the finest sapphires in the world. It was cut in Sri Lanka, as well, faceted perfectly to bring out the fire and outstanding depth of color deep inside the gem.
Weighing over three carats and with exceptional clarity, this sapphire would require a mounting of equal quality. Something bold, something antique would be best, but it had to be the perfect size to hold this incredible gemstone securely.
It took a few years, but that mounting finally arrived! We're proud to be able to offer this gorgeous sapphire mounted into an Edwardian era engagement ring that is utter perfection!
Crafted of Platinum, the mounting is decorative without being overly ornate, feminine without frills. Classical chasing traces the entirety of the band, fusing into shoulders with pierced motifs, ending in square placards that glitter with diamonds. Subtle, sophisticated and strong, this is truly the perfect mounting for this sapphire!
