This Edwardian cabochon sapphire and diamond ring is one of the pretties that I tried on when I had the pleasure of visiting Lang Antiques a few months ago.
I call it my sneak favorite because I wasn’t expecting to fall for this one, but it’s turned out to be one of the pieces I haven’t been able to get out of my head. I actually wasn’t even thinking about this ring, so I have to thank my fabulous and loyal reader, PepperReed, for suggesting that I try this on while I was there. Pepper, you officially have amazing taste in jewelry. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
Could it possibly be more glorious? Look at it glow. It’s like a gumdrop full of magic. (Okay, not my most poetic. But it’s SO pretty.)
That softly glowing blue center stone is a 16.40 carat sugarloaf cabochon sapphire of exceptional quality; almost entirely flawless. The exceptional gem is accentuated by the delicate filigree of the original Edwardian mounting, which is further adorned by a halo of old European diamonds.
For a good, clean look, here’s an all-around look at this beauty from the gorgeous photos on Lang’s website.
This beautiful cabochon sapphire and diamond ring is still for sale at Lang Antiques. (Only because I can’t afford it. Otherwise, it would be on my finger.) The photos in the collage are thanks to Lang, the rest are my own.
