Hi everyone!

I have wanted a ring of this style for a very long time and I have searched antique websites and ebay hoping something would come up in my budget. I discovered this ring from a seller on ebay (beverlyhillsestatesale). Since I am in the Los Angeles area David was kind enough to meet me in person and let me look at a few of his gorgeous rings. His pictures really do no justice to his rings as all of the rings looked so much more vivid and beautiful in person. David was friendly, professional, and more than willing to go out of his way for his client. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

It was difficult to decide on this ring between the few that I looked at, but ultimately this particular stone really appealed to me because of it's beautiful chunky faceting, open culet, and steep crown. I've never owned a stone like this one and always wanted to.


Details:
Cushion cut center weighing .44 carats
Color: I
Clariy: VS2
French cut sapphires
Platinum
size 6.5 (I'm going to get this sized to a 4.25 soon)

While I find a lot of antique rings "interesting", there are very few I''d actually wear - yours, however, I''d happily wear in a heartbeat. It''s really, really beautiful - the sapphires look very lively, not dead and dark. I checked out his other stuff, and that ruby one like yours is pretty sweet too. Great job picking this one out!!
