Rare Vintage Very Fine Jewellery 14k Gold Ceylon Sapphire and Diamond Cluster Ring UK Size Q


One of our most special finds, this ring has a beautiful, mid-blue Ceylon Sapphire surrounded by two rows of Swiss-cut diamonds and set in 14k yellow gold.

Ceylon Sapphires are highly prized, known for their stunning color and sparkle. Fun fact: Princess Diana's engagement ring is a Ceylon Sapphire, now owned by the Duchess of Cambridge. 

This ring's story is just as special as its design. Purchased by an English gent in 1992 from Premadasa, a renowned fine jeweller in Colombo, Sri Lanka, it was a gift for his wife. The original receipt, showing a purchase price of £1410 back in 1992 is included.

The price of gold per ounce in 1992 when this was purchased was £195/ounce. Today it is £1605/ounce.  With the price of gold, diamonds and sapphires skyrocketing since this was acquired, this ring offers exceptional value.

As these rings are rare and vintage, you may find that sometimes they don't come in the ring size that you are looking for. We suggest try wearing them on other fingers where they may fit. Alternatively we can offer a resizing service for a reasonable extra charge (please contact us directly). Most local jewellers also offer this service. Most rings can usually be resized 1-2 sizes up or down, depending on the design / condition.
