swedish sapphire and diamond pave 18k gold ring


The Story

A super chic piece, this 18 karat gold vintage ring has a fabulous sculptural design.

Made in Sweden in 1955, the angular shape centers around a cushion cut sapphire weighing 0.70 carats. Bezel set, the sapphire is a gorgeous deep blue. Surrounding the stone are 18 Old Mine Cut diamonds ranging in size from 0.05 to 0.10 carats giving the ring a total diamond weight of approximately 1.31 carats. The soft edges of the stones are set within a rectangular shape giving it great juxtaposition and interesting design.

The top portion is all set in 18k white gold making the diamonds and sapphire appear even brighter and whiter. Under the center portion is constructed from 18 yellow gold with scrolling open work in the gallery. It finishes with a wide band giving it a thick, chunky look. 

Period perfect from the 1950s, the 18k yellow and white gold combination gives it a super cool bi-color mixed metal look.

It looks fantastic on and takes up great finger real estate.
