Selling a collection of antique turn of the century rings. Many more coming soon - thanks for stopping by! : )


Beautiful old mine cut diamond solitaire ring with single cut diamond accents at each shoulder. Timeless, classic and so lovely. This antique from the early 1900s has a nice chunky old mine cut propped in the prongs. The piece is crafted in 18k gold. Makes a sweet stacker or lovely engagement ring.

No hallmarks remain but sold to me from a reputable source in Europe and tested to confirm.

Please note the measurements as I have small fingers and the pictures can make it difficult to see scale when it comes to the size of the stone. Antique box is not included.


Size 6, a little over but does not reach the 6 1/4 line. The diamond is about 4.2mm. I would not remove it from the setting but using estimates it is about .3 carat for the center, plus the six small single cuts.

The piece weighs 1.5g . It stands 5.6mm off the finger.


Typical antique diamond with a slight warmth and some nibbles around the girdle along with some faint natural inclusions. This is mostly seem under magnification. Rub marks and wear to the gallery as it appears to have been stacked with a band or wrap for most of its life. So the bridge of the ring, the part of the shank closest to the finger has some interruptions to the gold and small areas of loss due to wear against an adjacent band over years and years. This is worse on one side than the other and is seen when you take the ring off and look at the ring from the side. It is not as evident while wearing the piece. Some build up but I don't like to aggressively clean my antiques.

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 : )

Thanks so much for looking at my shop!

Will be sent with additional insurance, and signature confirmation upon delivery at my cost.

A note about antique diamonds:
The whole "4 C's" of cut, color, clarity, carat didn't come about until the 1940s so prior to that and especially on antique pieces, there was not as much emphasis placed on those things. (Sure people probably appreciated a certain look of a certain diamond as it appeared to the eye but it was not a graded scale like we have today.) So it is difficult to judge antique stones against modern day diamonds and their grading system. No two old cuts are the same as they were crafted in times lacking any modern standards. The diamond cutters of the time were experts at hand cutting each stone to enhance it which means that even lower color grades can be cut to appear whiter. It is also interesting that "lower graded" diamonds in today's scale system, were some of the best on the market during this period! So it is less about their grades and more about the unique play of light and color that each one can offer. I read one article that described: “When searching for the perfect old cut diamond (for you), you need to view them through different eyes as you would for a modern diamond. Laboratory grading reports don’t offer too much information in regards to the individual beauty or sparkle of an antique diamond. Antique diamonds are judged more on the individual character and uniqueness that each one potentially offers.”
