Georgian 18kt/Sterling Old Rose Cut Diamond Cluster Ring 0.85ctw
A beautiful diamond cluster ring from the Georgian (ca1820) era! Crafted in 18kt yellow gold and sterling silver, this magnificent ring adorns a sparkling, foil-backed diamond cluster centerpiece. The design features 8 old Rose Cut stones that encircle a larger, similarly cut stone at the center. All of the bezel set diamonds weigh approximately 0.85ctw combined, each one sparkling brilliantly in the light against the foil back setting. The sterling centerpiece displays a natural darkened patina, and is perfectly contrasted by the yellow gold wirework mounting and smoothly polished band that wraps around the back. This wonderful mixed metals design would make an impressive addition to any Georgian jewelry collection or the piece could make a unique and elegant engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size scant 6.75, but could be resized. The centerpiece measures about 1/2" tall, and is slightly less than 1/2" wide, and rests slightly less than 1/4" above the finger when worn. The graduated band measures 2mm wide in the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and silver setting. All of the diamonds within the centerpiece are intact and securely set. There is a natural patina on the surface of the setting, which is a normal characteristic of antique jewelry, and adds to its unique beauty. Due to the hand cut nature of old Rose Cut diamonds, the shape of the stones do not have perfect symmetry. This reflects the age and genuine appearance of antique diamonds.
