About

A 14K yellow gold ring with engraved decorations is bezel-set with an oval cabochon cut cornflower blue sapphire

11.5 x 9.8 x 5.8 mm, approximately 7.06 carats.

US ring size 8 (18 mm)

The ring is marked with maker's initials ' B A ', 56 zolotnik gold standard (14K), date ' 186? ' and a set of Soviet control marks for 583 gold from the 1930s. One of the Soviet marks - 'P' - indicates that the ring was repaired in the 1930s. Almost certainly, the sapphire had been re-polished at that time.
