10kt Purple Sapphire Solitaire Ring, 1.15 CTW, Sz. 5.5
Vintage 10kt Purple Sapphire Solitaire Ring, 1.15 CTW, Sz. 5.5. White gold. Great as engagement ring, September birthstone. The stone is a medium purple hue, tall basket with six prongs hold the stone that is appx. 6mm. Sits up appx. 7mm on the top of the finger white gold. Marked 10kt and tested. The band is appx. 2.4mm wide at top and tapers to 1.8mm at the back of the finger. Weight of the ring is appx. 2.20 gr. Age is estimated at later 1900's. The stone tests as sapphire - could be natural or lab grown. That does not mean it is glass. If it is lab grown, It is made of the same materials as a natural stone with all the same properties. Siimulated is when it is made of any substance that looks like the stone - it will not test as the stone - can be glass, , crystal, resin, etc. This ring is not simulated but is natural or lab grown. Lab grown stones tend to be cleaner or more perfect than the natural stone because they are grown in controlled settings. (INV W.12321.4X4 SS6297 J LD 1/9/22).
I carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. I am currently stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. I transitioned from rubber stamping to vintage jewelry about six years ago and also carry other vintage items and am trying to change my presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the transition is complete. You can find me on pinterest where all my ebay items are categorized - mariasvinta0654
I DO NOT STORE FINE METALS AND GEMSTONES ON PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT QUESTIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.
Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
