This very rare antique Tiffany & Co Art Nouveau era 14k gold signet ring is its original blue box. Set with an oval Sapphire in the most beautiful shade of blue. Art Nouveau inspired design.
The setting measures 13.5mm North-South. The Sapphire is 10mm by 8mm, estimated at 3 carats. The stone is replaced and suits it very well.
The ring size is 4.5 US. It is engraved "Rachel F. H. Thomas, 23" inside the band. The number 23 could be a date but that cannot be confirmed. It is fully hallmarked "Tiffany & Co, 14k". The ring weighs approximately 8.1 gram.
The blue box we all love is a little darker today than it was when originally made. Both the ring and box are in good condition, there is loss of detail on the ring's shoulders due to regular wear and age and some wear to the leather cover of the box.
Tiffany & Co did carry 14k gold jewelry, some of these pieces belonging to important collections, featured in auctions at prestigious auction houses and featured in books which include G.I.A. courses. The exclusive use of 18k is a more recent event.
