Spectacular 3 Stone Diamond Victorian Ring, 2ctw 15k and Platinum
Old cut diamonds can be dangerous. The more of them you see, the more of them you desire to own! Whereas modern brilliant cut diamonds can be nice and sparkly, old European cuts like these are more like individual works of art. Hand cut by craftsmen who spent decades learning their craft. These cutters used no computers, no lasers, they used their eyes, their experience and their hands, often cutting with tools they had made themselves. The result is a diamond with a uniqueness of character that simply cannot be found in todays modern cut stones. This English Victorian ring was made in about 1880 and showcases a cushion cut diamond with large cut facets that cause it to flash with slow and stunning sparks of colorful fire.
This ring was hand crafted in 15 karat gold and set with platinum prongs (a later addition to this mid-Victorian ring), this ring dances with fire and flash. The center stone is a very clean and white Old European cushion cut which measures 5.6 mm x 5.2 mm x 4.2 mm deep and weighs about 1 carat on the nose, the two sides stones are also gorgeous and clean, one weighs approximately .5 carats, the other is about .45. Set in and around the three main stones are 6 smaller stones, 5 are rose cuts and one is a full cut (likely a replacement). The three full cut stones are all H/I in color and VS1-2 in clarity. This ring dates to about 1880 and while it's unmarked it was most certainly made in England. The ring is a size 7 but could be re-sized by a qualified jeweler, it weighs 3.4 grams.
As an engagement ring, I think this ring would make any girl swoon. A very, very lovely and romantic specimen of a ring. Don't worry, it's okay if you don't want it, I'll be happy to hang out with this one for awhile!
