Antique Victorian 18ct gold old mine cut diamond three stone ring ~ Gypsy ring 1878
This is a stunning Antique diamond three stone ring is one of those rings that is becoming very hard to find. It dates from the mid Victorian Era and dated 1878...... One hundred and fourty four years old!
This beautiful gypsy style ring is completely hand crafted in 18ct gold. The star burst settings are grain set with three exceptionally clear and bright old mine cut diamonds. Each of the diamonds were painstakingly cut and polished by hand so no two are exactly the same, they totally unique and full of character! It's the kind of ring we just love to find for the shop!
The centre diamond is assessed to be is approximately 0.60ct, each side of centre, one is approximately 0.35ct and the other 0.30ct giving a total weight of around 1.20 carat. Unusually for old mine cuts they are very vibrant, white and lively, assessed within the setting to be F-G colour. Under a jewellers loupe the centre stone has a chip to a side facet and one near a claw but is otherwise very clean. One side stone is approx VS1/2 the other is SI1.
