Vintage 18K Gold, Silver, Blue Enamel, and Diamond Ring


This fabulous 18k gold and blue enamel ring is from Portugal, made some time between 1940 and 1950. The eye-catching royal blue enamel background is accented with rose cut diamonds bezel set into silver leaves. The foliate motif resembles sprawling ivy that wraps across both the face of the ring and the 18k gold band. The leaves are made of sterling silver, while the stems are made of 18k gold. In the center of the ring is a single cut diamond that adds a beautiful sparkle. The gold stems, silver leaves, and diamonds truly pop against the rich royal blue enamel. The ring’s band is bubbly and charming, which compliments the slightly raised carriage. 

Each of the six rose cut diamonds are approximately 1.75mm to 2mm in size. They add a lovely organic touch to the ring’s design. The single cut diamond is 2mm in size. The diamonds have a combined approximate weight of .35 carats. 

The ring weighs 9.55 grams. The face of the ring measures 1” by 3/4”. The carriage sits approximately 1/4” above the finger. The underside of the carriage is detailed with engraved lines that add additional depth to the piece.  

As is customary in Portugal, the ring is marked on the outside. The ring tests as 18k gold. 

The ring is a size 6.75 - 7, and could be resized by your local jeweler. This gorgeous vintage piece is in excellent condition.
