french diamond and turquoise cluster 18k gold ring


The Story

A sweet antique 18 karat gold ring with great color and sparkle.  Made in France, circa 1880s-1900, it centers arounds a nice and chunky Old Mine Cut diamond weighing approximately 0.15 carats. Surrounding the diamond are ten calibré-cut turquoise cabochons set in a circle creating a cluster design.  The back of the ring is open allowing the diamond to sparkle bright.

All made in 18 karat yellow gold, the age of the ring shows in the best way with its rich patina. The simple bands gives all the attention to the bright and colorful center section. We love this ring on its own or worn with other favorite pieces.
