Retro Large 18kt Diamond Starburst Ring 1ctw
An absolutely fabulous gold and diamond ring from the Retro (ca1940) era! Made of 18kt yellow gold, the ring is particularly large with a bold, dome-shaped design. Decorating the surface of the round dome are 12 old mine cut diamonds set within a carved starburst design. All together, the 12 diamonds have a total carat weight of approximately 1ctw. The shoulders and band of the ring are very elaborately detailed, with a 3-point geometric design overlaid where the base of the gold dome meets the band. The shoulders extend to a raised ivy leaf motif that carries along the back of the band. It's a stunning statement piece that would look exceptional worn everyday or on special occasions!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 7 but could be re-sized slightly if desired. The gold dome rests approximately 5/8" above the finger when worn and has a diameter of 7/8".
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is in excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to any of the diamonds, all of which are intact.
