We think this ring is a minimalist's dream forever ring. A little out of the box with the choice of a deep blue oval sapphire, but the clean and simple Art Deco lines of this piece cater to an understated beauty. The sapphire pulls a moody blue indoors and shockingly vibrant in natural light. On either side are three white diamonds set in platinum, adding only a touch of sparkle to the piece. This ring speaks the glamour of the time period in which it was first worn, but seems appropriately modern for today.
*Sapphire showcases light surface wear, commensurate with age.
