Vintage 12ct Rose Gold Sapphire Cocktail Ring

USD Approx. $654

A spectacular vintage statement ring, claw-set with a colour-change synthetic sapphire of approximately 6.7ct.
In sunlight, the sapphire is a gorgeous royal purple like amethyst, while under artificial light it turns a deep bluish purple, quite like the gem iolite.
The ring itself is crafted by hand in a warm rose gold that complements the stone beautifully – this one is full of character! The sapphire is held in a starburst style one-up-one-down prong setting atop a mount decorated with ornately twisted wirework detail. The effect is that of a vibrantly coloured sunflower.
This style of work is characteristic of Egyptian craftsmanship and the ring bears full 12ct Hallmarks for Cairo, 1975. Independent XRF testing actually shows the gold to be 13ct, slightly higher than the guarantee mark.
Both the ring and setting are in very good vintage condition. Minor scratches to the gold on the inside of the band are not visible in wear.
An unusual and fabulously eye-catching vintage ring!
