Victorian 14kt/Sterling Foil Backed Diamond Navette Ring 0.90ctw
An exquisite diamond navette ring from the Victorian (ca1850s) era! This mixed metals ring is encrusted with sparkling Rose Cut diamonds that grace the navette-shaped centerpiece. The gorgeous stones rest in a foil-back belcher setting, and weigh 0.90ctw collectively, catching the light beautifully with every turn. The diamonds graduate in size starting at the center, and are surrounded by a lovely swirled design with delicate cutouts throughout. The sterling silver centerpiece is flanked by 14kt yellow gold pillar-style shoulders, creating a wonderful mixed metal appeal. Finishing the design is an etched motif that decorates the shoulders, extending to a smooth band the wraps around the back. A stunning Victorian piece, this ring makes a fabulous statement when worn, perfect for a special occasion!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 5.25, but could easily be re-sized. The navette-shaped centerpiece measures a little more than 1 1/8" tall, about 1/2" wide, and rests 1/4" above the finger when worn. The band measures 2mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the yellow gold and sterling silver setting. All of the diamonds are intact and securely set. The ring shows some signs of resizing, however it is on the band at the back and is not noticeable when worn.
