Antique Victorian Diamond Solitaire Ring, 18k Gold with Black Enamel

I saw this ring at the first appointment I had in London on my last trip over and feel instantly in love! I love, love, love this ring! The .55+ carat cushion cut diamond is stunning and sparkly, the mount is like nothing I have ever seen, ornate and whimsical all in one. The shoulders are detailed in black enamel, the shank is solid and has a great soft feel.

The ring has been carefully acid tested and shows a gold content of 18 karat. The enamel is a little bit worn, especially further down the sides. The ring is currently a size 9.5 and it would require a jeweler who uses a laser to do the re-sizing. It weighs 3.8 grams. It was made around 1880, but I'm not exactly sure where. I purchased it in London and I'm sure it's European, but I can't say exactly where.

This ring would make a lovely engagement ring, however, if you are planning to wear it all the time, everyday, the enamel will wear off eventually. It is looking for someone who will wear it gently.
