Edwardian Platinum/14kt Old Mine Cut Diamond Horseshoe Ring 0.50ctw
A gorgeous diamond horseshoe ring from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! This beautiful piece features a platinum-topped diamond horseshoe motif resting atop a lovely 14kt yellow gold band. The horseshoe adorns a row of 7 old Mine Cut diamonds, which weigh approximately 0.50ctw combined. The sparkling stones catch the light brilliantly with every turn, and rest in an open-back prong setting lined with fine milgrain work. Delicate cutouts decorate the sides of the centerpiece, which rests on a smoothly polished band that graduates slightly towards the back. A lovely and feminine ring, it is perfect for the equestrian enthusiast and would make a fashionable addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 4, but could re-sized. The diamond horseshoe measures approximately 1/2" wide and tall and rests about 1/8" above the finger when worn. The graduated band measures 1mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the gold and platinum setting, and all of the diamonds are intact and securely set. Due to the hand cut nature of old Mine Cut diamonds, the shape of some of the stones do not have perfect symmetry; this reflects the age and genuine appearance of antique diamonds.
