Nice and chunky sparkle to this cluster ring, unique in a buttercup setting with old mine cuts giving it a wonderful sparkle. The buttery shoulders have engraved details leading up to the ring face holding 1 carat in old cut diamonds. There are 7 diamonds in all.

What makes this one even more desirable are the sturdy prongs making this one ready for regular wear.

Found in England, it is stamped 18CT for 18k gold with maker's mark. This one actually is a true unisex ring as these were also popular for men during the period.

Antique boxes, props, mice, staircases and bannisters ; ) not included. Please note the measurements as I have small fingers and it can be difficult to determine scale from pictures.

Size 12.5. Ring face is 11mm north south and 4.6mm tall off the finger. It weighs a sturdy 7 grams.

Exact depths of the diamonds and thereby exact carat weight is unknown / approximate as I would never remove them, but estimated weight is around 1 carat in diamonds. They are fairly uniform in size as the center diamond is 3.3mm and the old mine cuts in the halo are around 2.7 to 3.3mm each.


Typical antique diamonds with some faint natural inclusions as we often see during the period, before such things were emphasized for machine cut diamonds. They have some natural inclusions that are slightly eye visible. One diamond has a nibbled area of the girdle but they all appear complete to the eye and fill the setting with no chips or cracks. This is seen more under magnification than with normal wear. Also nice to find all the diamonds so secure in sturdy prongs. The old cuts vary with some displaying large open culets while others are quite small. All hand cut though as you can see the asymmetrical pavilions even in the ones that come to a more pointed culet as they were chiseled. Excellent sparkle with a great antique look.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my shop. Thanks for stopping by!
