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


This is a fun and quirky one with old mine and rose cut diamonds set into the rectangular ring face. Crafted in 18k gold with the diamonds set in platinum, there is a very organic feel to the piece as the diamonds are slightly differing shapes / sizes. It seems they made the ring face to fit the diamonds, giving it a lovely cobblestone appearance. The two largest diamonds are nice and chunky old mine cuts. These are divided by little rose cut spacers set in pairs, two at each end and two between the old mine cuts. Fun to wear layered with other pieces because it's completely encrusted and has a geometric shape to be a great stacker.

French hallmarks for 18k gold and platinum.

Antique boxes, props, 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 5 3/4. The largest two diamonds, the old mine cuts are about 4 to 4.5mm each. The six smaller rose cuts are about 1.5mm give or take. I would not remove the diamonds from the setting but using estimates it is at least .7 carat total with all the diamonds just using estimates.

The piece weighs 2.85g . It stands 3.8mm off the finger. The ring face is 14x5.5mm.


Typical antique diamonds with a slight warmth to the old mine cuts. The rose cuts are also typical with irregular shapes, facets and some frosty spots and rough edges because they were rough cut by hand so long ago. Under magnification one of the small rose cuts has a line through it, this is an inclusion. When you study the surface facets there is no interruptions so it is not cracked. 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.”
