Set to centre with a hexagonal cabochon natural sapphire in a closed back rubover setting with an approximate weight of 2.30 carats, further set with three round cabochon natural emeralds in closed back rubover settings with an approximate combined weight of 0.15 carats, to an impressive cluster design featuring polished edges, a smooth gallery and closed backholing, leading to broad integrated shoulders with ridged detail and flowing through to a solid flat shank. Tested yellow gold, circa 1200-1500.
