Gothic Medieval 14th Century Gold Sapphire Ring

A so called tart mold ring composed of a slightly tapered hoop with rounded rectangular or
D-shape section and a hexagonal pie shaped pyramidal bezel set with a deep blue sapphire cabochon.
The sapphire shows its natural shape (being cut from a hexagonal crystal) which has only been slightly rounded
and polished - a common fashion in Medieval time probably based on the idea not to disturb the
god given natural shape of the gem stone.

Date: 14th Century
Material: Gold, Sapphire
2.35 gramm , Ring Size: EU 54 -55 , British N1/2, US 7
Provenance: Private collection North Germany

Excellent condition. Slight wear to the bezel edges.
A small natural fissure on the gem surface ( not a crack or damage)
Fully wearable

The authenticity of the item is unconditionally guaranteed.
