Ceylon Pink Sapphire and Diamond Halo Ring

$55,000

This Belle Époque French ring features a nearly four-carat vivid pink Ceylon sapphire, framed by a halo of fiery old mine-cut diamonds. The pink sapphire’s brilliance is ideally showcased by the delicate platinum work of the bezel, and scrolling gallery that cradles the stone. The skillful handiwork minimizing the platinum mount, which is truly a lost art, maximizes the gems’ stunning interplay with light, while the graceful form subtly elongates the finger.
