Beautiful sparkle to this antique 18k gold ring with a lovely splay of 5 old mine cuts. At the moment I am especially drawn to stackable diamond bands and this is a lovely one. I try to acquire as many as I can because they are so versatile and wearable that they are typically sought after.

The reputable seller I purchased it from estimated it at 1.4 carat total weight and my measurements align with that. It is glittery and a striking one to wear and stack with a wonderful patina of antique gold, the scrolling underside and the 5 old mine cut diamonds in graduating sizes

Antique box not included.

Partial antique 18ct hallmark for 18k gold, likely British in origin.


It is a size 4 3/4. It weighs 3.6grams.
The knowledgeable seller I purchased it from estimated it as 1.40cts, the largest center diamond is about 5.2mm to give you an idea of scale.

The ring face is 6mm wide north to the south on the finger and it stands 4.3mm tall off the finger. The five diamonds span about 19mm east to west across the finger.


All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. Typical antique diamonds, with some natural inclusions - the largest center diamond has a linear dark gray carbon inclusion that is about 1mm long and it is eye visible. One diamond second from the end has two small nicks that look like inclusions that carried up to the surface and were polished. Just looking at the way they are shaped, they do not look like abrasions since they are more like a crease shape. This is not eye visible and seen only under magnification. I don't see any other nicks or nibbles. All the stones are secure and do not move with several long prongs on each so this one can shine with regular wear which is harder to find on pieces of this age. : )

Shank is sturdy. Still an unbelievable amount of sparkle on this fun stackable piece. It wears beautifully and great to see the prongs in such good condition! But Due to age - please note this is not a mint condition item.

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 these stones to enhance them, 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 put it nicely: “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 their individual beauty or sparkle which are based more on their individual character and uniqueness that each one potentially offers.” Just an interesting comparison of antique vs. modern diamonds. : )
