Forty-two decadent diamonds and a sensational natural Ceylon sapphire all held within the embrace of 18K white gold make it impossible for us to write anything about the stunning Edwardian Ceylon Sapphire Ring that does not include the word ravishing, because this phenomenal ring is the epitome of precisely that word.
Exquisitely designed at the turn of the century, this stunning beauty came into being at the height of modern Western cultural sophistication and elegance. King Edward was on the throne of England, and it seemed that almost the entire world was bustling with elation as advances in design, technology, medicine, and science seemed to fill the pages of newspapers every single day. The optimism of the age was reflected in fashion as well with both jewelry and clothes taking on a more delicate and ethereal appearance than the popular styles of the Victorian era.
It is only fitting then that this remarkable time gave us this most marvelous of rings. With a sapphire whose origins in Sri Lanka are believed to indicate its existence is likely the result of Pan-African orogeny more than 400 million years ago, this Edwardian ring cannot help but be extraordinary. And in the scintillating company of so many shimmering diamonds, the celestial hue of this Ceylon sapphire stands out all the more. A true masterpiece of quintessentially Edwardian artistry, this ravishing ring is a timeless wonder and one heck of a breathtaking adornment.
