Old mine cut diamonds and rose cut royal blue sapphires grace this antique Victorian fully hallmarked 18 carat gold ring. The ring is a boat shaped band with the five gemstones held aloft in a belcher type setting with a decorative scalloped profile. The shoulders feature circular punches giving a "duck bill" effect when viewed from the side, a design classic of the era.
This is a small but solidly cast ring in thick gold with a D-profile band. Perfect for layering and stacking with other antique rings, a charming example that evokes a world of bygone elegance and superb quality to boot!
