The Princess Diaries

Sparkling vintage sapphire ring with entourage of diamonds in white gold, circa 1980

Rings like this sapphire ring with its radiant entourage of sparkling diamonds are true classics of jewellery history. They have experienced a resurgence in popularity, particularly in recent years, as Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, wears a very similar piece from the London court jeweler Garrards on her ring finger - a piece of jewelry formerly worn by Princess Diana. The white gold band of this piece wraps around the finger with restraint and elegance, before merging into a precisely shaped oval flower on the front. Here the ring presents a first-class sapphire weighing about 2.10 ct in deep blue, framed by about 0.80 ct of fine brilliant-cut diamonds. The ten diamonds of very good color (top Wesselton to Wesselton) and beautiful clarity sparkle even brighter in their settings of high-carat white gold - and the contrast with the natural dark blue sapphire gives the ring a particularly glamorous tension. We have had the ring examined by an independent laboratory to test the material properties and confirm that the sapphire is a natural gemstone. The ring is in first class condition and we are pleased to be able to offer it to you here. A ring like this seems like the right thing for a young lady to adore as a princess!
