Antique Edwardian Belais 10K White Gold and Sapphire Blue Glass Baby Ring - Size 3/4 #c918
This adorable little baby ring was made by the Belais Manufacturing Co. It is from the Edwardian era and is a miniature version of the rings many women wore during that time period. It is comprised of fine 10K white gold and sapphire blue glass. The face of the ring holds a square cut, sapphire blue glass stone that has been set into a lovely etched, open back bezel. The ring is flared and wider in the front and tapers down in width from the shoulders back to the shank. The shoulders of the ring are decorated with fabulous chased swirl designs that add lots of visual interest and beauty to the ring. It's an extraordinary gem!

The ring is very small in size, measuring about a ring size 3/4. It is approximately 4.5mm wide and weighs 0.7 grams. It is signed and hallmarked "Belais 10K" on the inside of the ring band. It also has a shield-shaped symbol that I could not identify on the inside of the band. The blue stone is approximately 3mm in size.

This is an absolutely beautiful ring! It would make a fine gift for the parents of a new September baby, especially if it was engraved inside the band with the new baby's name and birthdate. It's a marvelous piece that a mother could wear on a chain or a charm bracelet to remember the birth of her precious baby. It would also make a nice midi ring for the woman with a very small hand. The ring is in excellent antique condition with normal light wear from over 100 years of use. There is a tiny fleabite to the stone that was observed with high power magnification and really isn't noticeable to the naked eye.

A NOTE ABOUT BELAIS JEWELRY-

Belais jewelry is highly coveted by collectors. The company developed a formula for white gold and received a patent for it in 1920. The white gold was extremely popular during the 20s and it even became known as "Belais metal". Owning a piece of Belais white gold jewelry is quite special, given this historical significance and the impact it had on jewelry design and manufacturing.
