I over-indulged by buying this (and some other bits!) in a 'closing down' jewellers sale just before Christmas and just wanted to show it, as it's a cutie!
It's very unlike anything else I've got or ever been interested in, but the colour of the three main stones really interested me, they're an amazing teal colour ( but in poor light they look very dark) with tiny 'tested' diamonds.
It's 9ct yellow gold and the jeweller said they're teal Tourmalines, but when I took it to a jewellery workshop to have it sized they said 'lovely teal Sapphires'!
It's just a 'cheap' everyday ring but the colour and scroll detail is nice, it looks like an old style ring but it may not be as I can't make out the year stamp, it's just something nicely different for me to enjoy..naughty but nice :)

Happy New Year!

I really like the setting! I was looking at something similar for my Mom, most likely it's a nice vintage repro! If you want to know what the stones actually are I would think an actual appraiser would be your best bet, there's a huge difference in the durability of sapphire vs. tourmaline, if it is tourmaline this ring will need to be worn pretty carefully!

Hi Asscherhalo_lover,
Thank you, I hope you find something lovely for your Mom. I hadn't thought about that aspect of them possibly being Tourmalines, they're well set within the gold but like you say maybe I should view it as less 'everyday' ring just incase! This was taken before I had it enlarged so I now wear it on my third finger RH and not the pinkie/little as in the photo.
As I was lucky to get it at a great price in the sale, I'm not sure if I'll get it appraised as it might not be worth it other than for curiosity value!
Thanks again and Good luck with your present hunting.
