A charming diamond ring from the Victorian era (ca1880)! The mixed metals design is crafted in 14kt gold and topped in sterling silver, creating a lovely 2-tone effect. A sparkling old Mine Cut diamond is bezel within the decorative centerpiece, which elevates the stone above the surface. The diamond weighs approximately 0.53ct, and has estimated I color and VS2 range clarity. Surrounding the center stone is a fine filigree border, which includes 6 delicate single cut accent diamonds. Completing the design is a slim gold band topped in sterling at either side, and engraved with a shallow groove around the back. Stamped on the side of the band are a few small hallmarks, which are partially faded due to age. An unusual Victorian piece, it would make a unique antique engagement ring or a lovely everyday piece!
Measurements: The ring has a scant 6 finger size, but could be resized if desired. The centerpiece rests 3/16" high, and measures 1/4" in diameter. The band measures approximately 1.5mm wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and sterling silver setting. The diamonds are all intact and securely set.
