She'll take your breath away! Always a favorite, antique "Daisy" rings embody everything there is to love about the Victorian period: elegance, simplicity and blindingly brilliant old cut diamonds. Circa 1880, this absolutely GORGEOUS ring is a knock-out. I've had several daisy rings in the shop over the last 10 years - all beautiful - but this one is truly magnificent.
Set with a cultured Akoya pearl center, measuring approximately 5.35-5.40mm round, the pearl has perfect luster, with a creamy, rosy peach-pink overtone. There is no loss to the nacre, nor any pits or indents to her.
Surrounding the pearl are 8 closely set significantly sized Old European Cut diamonds. They are glorious emitting a huge amount of fire power as old diamonds do. Additionally, helping with their sparkle factor is their clarity: totally eye-clean, VS clarity and estimated white G-H-I color. The scintillation coming from these diamonds is unreal. There appears to be one very small chip/flea bite to just one of the diamonds, which is to be expected given the age of the ring. I cannot locate any further flea bites to the other diamonds.
Unmarked but acid tested for 14kt yellow & white gold, the shank is designed as a split-shank. This is possibly a newer shank though we can't be sure as we have seen other Victorian pieces with split-shanks. Currently a US size 7.25 to 7.50, sizing will be possible up or down without issue as there's plenty of room to size. Please inquire about sizing if needed before placing your order.
Grand. Gorgeous. Gracious. She's waiting to become yours!
