This very simple mounting is called a belcher setting, after the original designer. Originally designed for a mans hand, the Belcher mounting underwent many variations over the years, but always retained the simple, rustic shape it was originally known for.
The stone at the center of this antique ring is a lovely light blue-ish purple Star Sapphire from Sri Lanka, the source of the finest Sapphire material in the world. Corundum, or sapphire, is found in nature in every shade of the rainbow, from the deepest blues to brightest yellows. The finest stones have the fewest inclusions, the deepest color. Or, even more rare, they are included in such a way that light if refracted from them in the rays of a star!
This is a natural Star Sapphire. Photographed under several lights, the pictures still do not do justice to the wonderful star phenomenon!
