Sandringham

$22,500.00

Sandringham is an exquisite, authentically vintage Victorian (circa 1895) sapphire and diamond engagement ring. This show-stopping 18k yellow gold ring showcases a 2.61ct Oval Brilliant Cut sapphire accompanied by a GIA Report stating the sapphire is of Burmese origin and has not been heat treated. The center stone is surrounded by a halo of fifteen Old European Cut diamonds graded approximately 1.50ct in combined total weight. This stunning ring is finished with a contemporary 18k yellow gold shank splitting at the shoulders that was likely added in the last 40 years. Sandringham's low profile and evenly-saturated and unheated sapphire make this Victorian beauty a showstopper!

The ring is currently a size 6.5 and can be sized to fit most ring sizes. Please contact our concierge with sizing questions.

HISTORY
The Victorian Period was named for Queen Victoria, who inherited the throne of England in 1837 when she was only 18 years old. Victoria was young, beautiful, and loved immensely by her subjects. Her tastes in fashion and jewelry were highly regarded and inspired the Victorian jewelry trends of the time. Queen Victoria was married in 1840, and she wore a snake motif ring (a symbol of eternal love at the time) set with her birthstone, a brilliant green emerald, as her engagement ring. In the Victorian era, it was very common for birthstones to be used instead of diamonds for engagement rings. After Victoria’s beloved Albert passed away in 1861, the queen went into the customary mourning period for 18 months, which inspired the gold lockets and black jet pieces commonly seen in this period.
