1891 Rubover Old Cut Dreamboat

A truly wonderful old cut sapphire and diamond rubover ring dated to 1891

Why we love it

Why do we love it?

Hmmm that’s a difficult one to answer; it’s always challenging to put true love into words, right?

This is an exceptional example of its kind. The stones are TDF, all three are old cuts, the sapphire just the right shade of mid-blue and the diamonds lively and white

Plus we always love a good rubover (yes if there’s a double entendre to be had you can guarantee that Emma will find it)

The old cut diamonds are white and lively. They are estimated at 0.2ct each (total diamond weight estimated at 0.4ct). They have delicious high crowns and are G/H colour and SI/SI2 clarity.
The stones have been independently appraised by our specialist who commented that this ring was a particularly good example of its type.


The sapphire has some minor scuffs and nibbles which are only visible under magnification and are entirely consistent with the age of the piece, Very good antique condition with wear commensurate to age and use
