Posy is a lovely antique, natural blue zircon and old European cut diamond 18kt yellow gold ring. The stone is a natural blue zircon that was popular prior to 1930 because of its lovely sparkle and entrancing color. It is not to be confused with cubic zirconia, a man made stone popular today. It is a very soft stone and wears very quickly, looking scuffed along the facet edges, but this one has only a minor amount of wear. The diamonds are old European cut with that special sparkle, and set in a ribbon of gold that forms the petals all around the blue zircon. They are very clear and sparkling and set off the stunning blue of the stone perfectly. Based on the cut of the gemstones and the style and markings on the ring, I believe Posy dates to around the turn of the century 1895-1910. This is a fine ring to give as a gift or really, a fabulous addition to your personal collection!
I do offer sizing for an additional fee, please convo me for details!

I ship within the US via First Class with insurance, unless otherwise noted in the listing or if you choose an upgraded shipping option. Shipping insurance covers the package until it reaches your mailbox. On orders over $750, a signature will be required. I generally ship as soon as I possibly can, often on the same day. If you are having a ring sized, this generally takes about a week.
For customers outside the US, PLEASE READ:
International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. WARNING: Items going to the European Union are subject to very high import taxes (VAT), please consider this before ordering. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates. It is against the law and I will not mark an item as a "gift" to avoid any fees.
If you are unhappy for any reason, please contact me within 14 days of receipt of your item and we will find a way to make you a happy customer! Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, but the full price and original standard (not upgraded) shipping will be refunded to domestic buyers, international shipping is not refundable. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. If you have had a ring sized, the sizing fee is not refundable.
Your personal information will only be used to contact you about your order and to fulfill the order.
Most rings can be sized up or down 3 or so sizes, in some cases that is not so and I have added that information to the description. It takes my talented bench jeweler about a week to complete the work.
Yes, I offer a 14 day, return for any reason policy. That is from the date of delivery.
