Vintage wedding or cocktail ring. 18k yellow gold, platinum, sapphires, diamonds. Made in New York, USA by Oscar Heyman Brothers. 2nd half of 20th century. Independent appraisal.

Measurements: Weight is 12.20 grams. US size 6.25 1.80ct sapphires; 1.01ct diamonds.

Description : Versatile ring that can be worn simply to look good, or as an exceptional wedding band. A wide, arching band of fabulous diamonds of a very high quality (F-G in color; VS clarity) are pave set and twinkle and shine infinitely. Diamonds are set in platinum - a long time ago, it was discovered that diamonds look best in white metal and so were set in silver or platinum. The rest of the ring's metal is 18k yellow gold. Slightly below the raised level of the diamonds are bands of gold holding calibre cut sapphires, invisibly set to form a pair of borders along the diamonds. The shank is a raised central band with lower side bands of gold, tapering towards the back. The ring is fabulous in quality and extremely versatile in use. Oscar Heyman was known as the 'jeweler's jeweler'. They actually made the jewelry for top companies such as Van Cleef and Arpels, Cartier and Tiffany in the USA, from early on in the 20th century. While Van Cleef and Arpels were famed and credited with invisibly set gems, it was in fact Oscar Heyman who made these pieces.

Marks and Metal: inside shank is marked 18K PLAT. Oscar Heyman maker's mark - co-joined HB in a circle and S6611 (could be a 5 and not an S - please see pictures).

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer. Independent appraisal with value of $10500.00 available to new owner.
