General Information:

  • US Size:  4.75 (not resizable)
  • Total Carat Weight: 1.14 ctw
  • Precious Metal Weight: 0.84 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 18k white gold
  • Dimensions:  The face of the ring measures 2.20 mm north to south (width) and rises about 1.95 mm from the finger.
  • Weight: A comfortably light 1.31 grams
  • Markings:  Unmarked and tested
  • Era:  This ring dates to circa 1920 during the Early Art Deco movement. Beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enable us to determine, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range or history than this without knowledge of the piece’s exact provenance.
  • Buyer Notes:  The ring shows evidence of a resizing at some point in its ~100 years of life. This is not readily apparent when worn, but is worth noting (the arrows pictured indicate where the resizing took place). It’s likely that the ring was a size 5 originally and one stone+setting was removed to make it a quarter-size smaller (about a 1.5 mm size change as an adjustment for its original owner). Though some stones show some imperfection in their placement within the channel setting, none appear to wiggle or move when grazed by the tip of the finger, including the pair of sapphires mounted atop the location of the former resizing. Please kindly keep in mind that it is ALWAYS a buyer best practice to have any used/secondhand jewel checked by your jeweler prior to wear and enjoyment. This ring shows a historic size adjustment (as indicated in the pictures), but it is NOT RESIZABLE.

Specifications:

  • Center Stone Type: Created sapphire; these grown sapphires are chemically identical to their mined counterparts and by the 1920s actually commanded higher prices than natural stones, as their introduction at the end of the 19th century represented the height of technological advancement.
  • Center Stone Count: Thirty-Eight (38)
  • Center Stone Carat Weight: Professionally estimated weight of 1.14 ctw (by formula using the dimensions above and per the specific gravity of corundum)
  • Center Stone Dimensions: On average, 1.50 mm
  • Center Stone Shape: French Calibre Cut
  • Center Stone Color: Bright cobalt to rich navy depending on the light
  • Center Stone Clarity: Translucent to semi-translucent

    The Story:

    An Art Deco staple, with classic lines and vibrant color, this engraved gemstone band is bright, storied and a true antique. In a beautiful sequence of royal blue, an impressive 38 total sapphire stones round the band in the eternity style. The ring’s north and south faces retain their original engraved cyma swirls, which remain beautifully crisp despite the piece's century-old age. The sapphires show surface wear commensurate with the ring’s age and affectionate use, with some character-adding imperfection. Even so, these stones maintain their desirable geometric contours for which French cuts are so beloved.

    Perhaps a common misperception about lab created corundums, such as sapphire: created sapphires uniquely showcase the scientific feats of the early 20th century, and at the time of their creation, actually commanded higher prices than mined variations. Such stones were created under controlled lab conditions, but are chemically identical to their nature-made counterparts. As such, the material makeup of both created gems and natural gems is the exact same. This means that the same ideally opulent tones found in nature can be achieved by man. In the 1920s and 1930s, lab created stones were much more common in high end jewelry, as the jewels conveyed the wearer's wealth and knowledge of all things new and noteworthy.

    Given this interesting history, this band is something of an exciting relic of its past life, representing the technological advancements of the last 100 years, and generations of storied wear.

    By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

    Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

    Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

    Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

    Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

    Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

    In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

    • A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

    • The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

     In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

    Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

    All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

    Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
