If you’re into vintage sapphire jewellery as much as we are, you will love the latest pieces at Cynthia Findlay Antiques. Specializing in vintage, antique, and estate jewellery, Cynthia has hand-selected a few of the most beautiful sapphire jewellery we’ve ever seen. Here’s a look at two of our favorite pieces, including a stunning sapphire and diamond necklace featuring lovely detail.
Sapphire and Diamond Necklace
More than a statement piece, this sapphire and diamond necklace can be worn at a gala or formal event. It boasts a unique tear-drop design that features two pear-facetted sapphires (2.88 carats), three round sapphires (4.35 carats), and 116 round brilliant cut diamonds (2.77 carats). Set in 18 karat white gold, this lovely design has two bows filled with diamonds and a lovely leaf motif also filled with diamonds. It’s hard to decide which part of the necklace we love most, but one thing is certain: the blue sapphire stones are stunning!
Sapphire and Diamond Ring
Vintage jewellery has a special aura about it, especially when it is made of antique diamonds and sapphire. The sapphire and diamond ring at Cynthia Findlay’s is an elegant piece that is both impressive and captivating. Set in 14 karat yellow and white gold, it features one exquisite sapphire stone (0.53 carats) in the middle of two old European cut diamonds (0.44), and surrounded by two leaves with a total of twelve single cut diamonds (0.12 carats).
