Exquisite sapphire ring with diamonds in gold & platinum, circa 1910 & 1950

This ring has the circle as its theme and sets the scene in an unusual way. A dark blue sapphire in a high cabochon cut with a circular base in a delicate platinum frame is framed by a magnificent wreath of diamond roses. A circumferential shadow gap forms the outer finish of the ring head. The gemstones are set in platinum, while the underlying ring head is made of gold. We assume that the ring was created in two phases: the present ring head with its fine diamonds and beautiful sapphire was forged in the years around 1910 and may once have been a cufflink. To this end, a fine under-cadence and plain rail were forged in solid platinum in the mid-20th century, restaging the antique roundel element - presumably because the counterpart was lost. Thus, the beautifully crafted piece could continue to be worn and now experiences its new existence as a ring.
