A gorgeous turquoise and diamond ring! A beautiful carved filigree half hoop style- a style popularized in the Victorian to early Edwardian era. This ring has been made with the Victorian-Edwardian era in mind and at a quick glance appears original, however likely cast from an original Victorian mount. This ring is a better quality reproduction - unlike some of the lightweight cast, poorly finished repro's on the market, this ring is a sturdy 6+ gram weight and has an overall nice finish and crisp detail.
Gorgeous filigree scroll detail embellishes the sides and shoulders of ring.
The substantial-sized ring is adorned with three natural turquoise gemstones and four rose-cut diamonds. The centre oval cabochon turquoise measures approx 9.35mm x 7.60mm and the side oval cabochon turquoise measure approx 7mm x 6.20mm. The rose cut diamonds placed in between measure approx 1.50mm. Head of ring measures 9.40mm widest point x 20mm across finger. Shank measures 5.50mm wide at shoulder to 1.80mm wide at base.
No carat stamps are evident, a test has been carried out and confirms 18ct gold. The rich yellow gold colour is lovely, bestowing a soft yellow gleam down shank. There is a small stamp which is difficult to decipher placed inside shank base and sizing remnants at base of shank are evident. Ring can easily be resized up or down to a certain degree.
A gorgeous, impressionable estate ring! One for the avid turquoise lover ... or perhaps the December birthstone!
