A charming and detailed ring. Sapphire and diamond cluster rings are an ever-popular engagement ring style seen throughout the Victorian era and into the twentieth century. However, this sweet and stunning ring has several details that set it apart from the classic sapphire and diamond cluster. The band of the ring features a lovely pattern of twisted gold that meets the delicate diamond details on either side of the ring’s central cluster. The diamonds have been arranged on either side of the central floral cluster in the shape of two lovely butterflies, adding whimsy to this classic and twinkling ring. This piece would be a dainty and feminine engagement ring.
