This lovely ring dates to the early 1900s. The workmanship is exquisite, with structural filigree work in the undercarriage that allows light to come through this stunning Ceylon sapphire. The ring itself is Green Gold, gold that has been alloyed with sterling silver to give it a distinctive, pale green tint. Combined with the rich purple of this sapphire, the effect of the two colors is natural and floral. The shape of this ring, as well as it's style, make it suitable as an engagement ring or as an every day ring.
The stone is from Sri Lanka, also called Old Ceylon. Sri Lanka is the source of the finest sapphire in the world, and this stone is no exception. The color is rich and deep, without being overly dark. There is plenty of fire in the center, and the cutting is expertly done. As with most of our precious gems, we purchased this stone on location during one of our frequent buying trips.
