Victorian 14kt Natural Green Spinel + Diamond Cluster Ring 3.00ct center
A stunning spinel and diamond cluster ring from the Victorian era (ca1880)! This 14kt gold piece adorns a natural, no-heat 3.00ct green spinel at the center of a sparkling diamond cluster. The prong-set gemstone displays a luscious celadon green hue, catching the light beautifully in its open back setting. Encircling the spinel is a border of Rose Cut diamonds, which have an approximate total carat weight of 0.80ctw. The sparkling stones rest in a shared prong setting, and add incredible radiance to the elegant design. Two scalloped filigree rows grace the raised mounting, and an etched leaf motif decorates each shoulder. A trio of carved lines embellish the pillar-style band, which extends to a smooth shank that wraps around the back. A gorgeous Victorian piece, it would look exceptional worn on special occasions, or it could make a fantastic gemstone engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.25, but could easily be resized as desired. The spinel and diamond centerpiece measures about 1/2" in size, and rests approximately 1/4" high. The tapered gold band measures 2mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The sapphire and diamonds are all intact and securely set.
