Antique Victorian Sapphire Bridge Ring
Set six across with graduating Ceylon type sapphires, this Estate Ring must have many stories to tell. Dating from around 1900s the ring has been very well loved. It is unusual in that the stones vary in hue, ranging from a very pretty violet blue to a steely blue to a more typical or traditional deep blue sapphire. They probably shouldn't work together but they do!

Condition: The scrolling gallery edge is quite worn. While the ring has a heavy gold mount and there is no structural damage, it is still quite obvious that other rings have been worn on each side regularly. The claws have been re-tipped fairly recently and the stones are secure. The ring has been poorly resized and there are now only remnants of the original hallmarks, being a crown and the letter M
SEDGWICKS pride ourselves on sourcing and selling Antique & Estate Jewellery that is of fine quality and in great condition.
Antique & Estate Jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. Nearly all items we sell are ‘Second-hand’ and will almost certainly show some signs of wear. These may include faint scuffmarks and small dents, even very minor repairs. These are considered acceptable when dealing with objects that have lived a full life. Any imperfections or minor damage will be listed in the description and visible in the photo.
We do ask that you carefully view the photographs provided and note we are happy to supply more images or fuller description if requested.
To help you make your assessment, many higher value items are accompanied by an Independent Valuation for Retail or Insurance Purposes.
