victorian old mine cut diamond and sapphire large navette ring


The Story

A show stopping antique navette ring filled to the brim with chunky old cut stones. Dating back to circa 1860s-1890s, it centers around an old cut sapphire weighing approximately 1 carat bezel set in warm yellow gold. Surrounding it are 34 Old Mine Cut diamonds ranging in size from 0.02 carats to 0.30 carats each for a total diamond weight of approximately 2.83 carats. The back of the setting are open allowing light to pour in and make the diamonds sparkle bright.

The front of the ring is made from 14k yellow gold and accented with silver while the band is done in 18k yellow gold and is complete with French important markings. 

The long navette shape has a presence on the finger measuring an impressive 1.38 inches in length. A true heirloom to love now and for generations to come.
