victorian 5-stone pearl and old cut diamond 18k gold ring


The Story

From circa 1850s-1880s, this Victorian five-stone band is an antique treasure.  It features three diamonds set at center which pre-date the construction of the ring and are believed to have been cut in the 1700s.  The three antique table cut diamonds weigh approximately 0.12, 0.15, and 0.12 carats respectively for a total of approximately 0.41 carats.  On either side of the diamonds, a single pearl is set to finish the band. 

Crafted in 18 karat yellow gold, the ring has fantastic patina that complements the diamonds.  The backs of the diamond settings are open allowing light to pour through the stones.  The bands edged design creates a beautiful line from front to back.

A very old and delicate ring, it should be worn and loved with extra care.
