Victorian 14kt & Sterling Diamond Engagement Ring 0.57ct
An absolutely gorgeous solitaire diamond engagement ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful piece is made of bright 14kt yellow gold and holds a single round diamond at the center of a 6-prong setting. The ring features sterling topped banded accents at each shoulder, an aesthetic detail that was likely added in the early 1900's when mixed metals designs grew in fashion. The sparkling diamond stone has a total carat weight of approximately 0.57ct and has I color and SI1 clarity. Stamped inside the shank are the marks "14K" and "RTA," as well as at the engraved letters "KMLH". The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Gemologist in October 2014 and has a stated retail replacement value of $3,500.00. A stunning version of a classic solitaire design, the ring looks beautiful when worn and would make a very special engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring is a finger size 6.5 but could easily be re-sized up or down.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, platinum accents, or to the diamond stone, which is intact and securely set.
