Tiffany & Co. Gilded Age Men's Sapphire Cabochon Ring in Gothic Setting

About

The Astors, the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers: these were among the grandest families of the grandest era in American History: the Gilded Age, near the turn of the 20th century. And Tiffany & Co. was the jeweler of record. This important and impossibly rare men's sapphire ring was created at the pinnacle of their design and craftsmanship excellence. Hand-fabricated from rich 18k gold and featuring an elaborately carved and distinctly Gothic band, the centerpiece of this masterwork is a slightly oval cabochon cut sapphire of royal blue weighing 7.25 carats and measuring 10.58 mm x 9.71 mm x 7.72 mm. The sapphire is unique because it is a facet-quality gem and appears unheated. In all ways, this is a ring of tremendous substance and importance. It weighs 22 grams and is perfectly balanced on the finger. Currently a size 10.25, I see no evidence of prior sizing. The piece is in exceptionally fine condition and is without damage, repairs or issues. Given the age of the ring—and of course the fact that its original owner wore gloves and certainly never so much as touched a doorknob himself—the exceptional condition can only be attributed to subsequent owners who, like me, were surely collectors and not wearers. You will find no equivalent. This ring is of great historical importance and would be a powerful signature piece.
