A warm and glittery daisy cluster ring with a nice size footprint on the finger. Totaling around 1 1/2 carats of old mine cut diamonds, the center stone is over a carat alone surrounded by a halo of smaller OMC's. We often see clusters with the stones more uniform in size, so this one is interesting with the large stone in the center.

The other things I love about it are the varying hues to the diamonds - some warm and some champagne, one is a gorgeous light brown. I love finding antique diamonds with hues - to me it adds to the antique look of the piece giving warmth to the moody sparkle of old cuts. The difference in hues is more obvious in direct light than in ambient light, giving the piece an organic feel, knowing that the talented goldsmith of the time used the stones they had available to them.

Found in England, no hallmarks remain. The shank tests at 18k gold with the settings of the diamonds topped in a white precious metal as was customary for the period to set diamonds in a white metal. (I do not scratch test the ring face for fear of harming the prongs / setting or stones).

Please note the measurements as I have small fingers and it can be difficult to determine scale from pictures. Antique box is not included.

Currently measures a size 6 3/4. It weighs a 2.8 grams. Ring face is 13mm in diameter and 5.5mm tall off the finger.
The center diamond is 6.5mm and a little over a carat alone.
The other nine diamonds in the halo are about 2.3mm for a total carat weight of around 1 1/2 carats, I would not remove them for an exact measurement.


This is not the ring for diamond enthusiasts who want their diamonds crystal clear and bright white. This one is for collectors (like me!) who enjoy unique characteristics and eccentricities in their antique stones. The diamond are typical for what we often find in antique diamonds, hand cut long before the Four C's scale was created for machine cut diamonds with mathematically perfected facets. They possess warm hues and natural inclusions. They are eye visible with some stones looking quite frosty and the center stone having some icy streaks and an eye visible carbon deposit. Some of the diamonds in the halo are beyond warm into champagne and light brown which is quite lovely. One nibble to the girdle of the center stone which is not eye visible. The culet also has some frosty scuffs seen when you look through the stone. No other damage to the stones. Prongs look good so this one can shine with regular wear, I believe they were reinforced at some point in its life. None of the stones move, but the center stone does sit below three prongs on one side leaving a slight gap between the prong and the stone. It does not move but lists to one side which is not super evident while wearing the piece but if you study it up close from the side you can see that, it is not noticeable when viewed face up. This is a fun one to wear with quite a nice fire to the stones.

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 : )
