This stunning diamond seven stone half hoop ring is the Victorian fabulousness personified.
Hand crafted in England around 1870 it features a lovely buttery yellow gold carved gallery and a simple band. Open back claw settings house a collection of seven diamonds of square, high cut cushion shape, so gorgeous and chunky.... just divine. These diamonds were most likely cut by hand and tool in the first half of the 19th century and they are just a joy to look at. The biggest one measures 4.03 by 3.03 mm, the smallest 3.14 by 2.59 mm. The estimated total diamond weight is 1.3 carat. Lovely and white, with a couple of dark inclusions which are not visible to the naked eye. The shank is stamped 18 ct for 18 carat gold. The ring is a US size 6 and UK size M and can be re-sized. The top of the ring measures 0.76 inches across the finger and is 5 mm wide at the widest point. It sits 3.37 mm off the top of the finger, lovely and low but constructed so that there is enough hight on the gallery to let the light under those fabulous diamonds and fire their facets up into their gorgeous dance!! The stunning shapes of these diamonds make this ring truly unique and individual, so different to the usual diamond hoop rings we come across. Yes, indeed........as unique and special as it's new owner to be.......
