Antique 18ct Yellow Gold ,Diamond and Pink Sapphire Ring
The most intriguing combination of a bright and beautiful natural pink sapphire with an old-cut diamond set on either side in the triple split shoulder.
The style and composition lead to the probability of this ring being an early French piece.
The stones are in a closed back setting with the diamonds mounted in silver to enhance their glow by candlelight.
The underside has the classic chasing to add interest.
The flat band is decorative with parallel lines and scroll motifs.
There is a degree of wear that gives a most pleasing and mellow feel to the ring.
