Today’s ring is nearly 100 years old and is a family heirloom given to one of our readers by her grandmother. The round stone is placed in a square setting surrounded by intricate triangular patterns of tiny diamonds. This contrasting play on geometrical shapes is typical of the art deco style.
In keeping with the triple band sapphire theme for the week, we thought we’d share another stunner. The center ring is encrusted with diamond baguettes topped with an offset sapphire, while the two side bands are paved with diamonds also topped with sapphires. Definitely a head turner at any holiday party!
