ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 14K Gold, Sterling Silver & Rose Cut Diamond Ring
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so - perhaps earlier, perhaps later
ITEM: More than likely French in origin, here's a very simple Victorian era ring of ROSE GOLD featuring a pair of rose cut diamonds set in silver. The design is of two florals with leaves - the larger diamonds acting as the flower itself.
CONDITION: Very nice with a patina of age. When found, the piece was COMPLETELY black so I gave a light polish. While the gold has come up, the sterling settings do show a touch of tarnish highlighting the diamonds.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold & Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: None, as is the norm with older pieces of Victorian jewelry; the French usually had hallmarks on only the card holding the item - if the surface of the item was too small for stamping. Gold has been gently acid tested for content - the silver used in the manufacture of this piece is the usual standard used in this design of jewelry.
SIZE: On my sizer, the ring measures just about 5-1/4. The design on top measures 9/16" x 5/8".
WEIGHT: 3.5 grams
DIAMONDS: 6 rose cut diamonds, 4 small in the leaves - 2 larger in the round settings. All the stones are prong set and are "best fit" as in the case of one of the large stones, it overfills the round setting while the other is perfectly set. All the diamonds are irregular in shape and size.
FINAL COMMENTS: Just a beautifully femmy piece of jewelry!
