This lovely antique ring was bought at Fellow’s Jewellery Auction by Tony. It has four light blue sapphires around a central chip cut diamond and surrounded by similar old cut diamonds. All are set silver on a gold ring and in the closed back typical of early rings –  early 19th century or possibly earlier. Just a very stylish ring with the softness that can only be achieved by old simple cuts – no ‘bling’ – just subtleness.
