RARE Elegant Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Blue Sapphire Paste Crystal Band Ring.
(Sale is the for 1 ring even though two rings are shown)
Costume jewelry since the 1700's has used the substitution of glass, paste and sterling for precious gems and metals. Adornment style costume jewelry, sometimes referred to as ?cocktail jewelry? was at it's peek during the 'Jazz Age'. Hence stunning ?fashion jewelry? was born. Fashion icons such as Elsa Schiaparelli and Coco Chanel approved of and pushed for the mixing of high fashion costume pieces with those of real gems. Being able to afford but not distinguish between the created and the real was most appealing then and not to all who continue to wear them to this day. Though very scares, we happily have one of the few which we present to you today. Elegantly fashioned with channel set square pastes in blue. The entire sterling band has appealing visual texture. Embellished with fine floral detailed engraving. Enjoy wearing it with ease.

Measuring just over 1/8 of an inch in width. Wound fit a size 6 finger. In excellent condition, no gaps between any of the pastes. All original pastes.
