Made by South Australian jewellery dynasty Wendts (1854 – 1980s), this wonderfully different half eternity ring features kite cut natural sapphires and single cut diamonds set into a two tone 18ct ring. Circa 1940’s it sits neatly between the influences of late Art Deco, hinting at Mid Century Modern design.
The ring is made in 18ct yellow gold with a white gold top. The gemstones are set in an alternating pattern of sapphire kites set in individual bezels, followed by single cut diamonds set into dogwood shapes.
Hallmarked 18ct to the inside of the band, with makers mark Wendts and a numerical catalogue number.
The gemstones have been verified as natural deep blue sapphires and genuine single cut diamonds by an independent gemologist. The three sapphires measure approximately 2.5mmx 4mm. The two diamonds have a diameter of 1.5mm
The face of the ring is 3.1mm wide, tapering from the yellow gold shoulders to 2.1mm at the back of the band.
Sits 1.75mm high on the finger.
Size M or 6.25
