A 10k yellow gold man's synthetic blue sapphire ring from the 1950s. This vintage size 9-3/4 or 9.75 ring measures 9/16" x 5/8" along the setting. The square blue stone is bezel-set and open backed and the superb electric blue colour is always evident and shows nice light play from the rear facets (see pics). This classic modernist ring is stamped 10 K with an A+A maker's mark and it weighs a substantial 7.9 grams. Synthetic sapphires are more commonly known kn now as man made or lab created sapphires. They are made from actual colourless sapphires. The interesting effect in the stone was caused by light refraction and the band reflected in the lamp when being photographed - it is not normally present.
It is in very good to excellent condition with no cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than a fine patina and tiny dents from wear.
