An Edwardian-era, boat-shaped ring, set with three (natural and untreated), oval yogo sapphires that are accented by four small rose cut diamonds. These light-filled, cornflower blue sapphires are set (flush) into the ring's lacy openwork face, in prong-secured seats. The gallery has a charming scalloped profile, and the ring's shoulders are carved with curling arrow motifs that reflect the arrow and diamond shaped seats that hold the gemstones. Metal is 18k yellow gold. This ring is fully and clearly hallmarked for 18k gold, Chester, England, and the year 1913.
