At the moment I am especially drawn to stackable diamond bands and this is an ornate one with nice sized diamonds that only slightly graduate in size and total around 3/4 carat. I try to acquire as many as I can because they are so versatile and wearable that they are always very popular.

In Antique 18k gold with vertical edges to the ring face. Prongs are in nice condition making this antique beauty ready for regular wear.

Antique box not included. Please note the measurements as I have small hands and it can be difficult to decipher scale from photos.

Found in England, Stamped 18CT for 18k gold inside the shank.


Size 5 3/4.
Exact depths and thereby carat weight is unknown as I would not remove the stones but they measure about 3 to 3.5mm each for a total of around 3/4 carat (0.75Ctw).
Stands 4mm off the finger, 3.6mm north to south and 16mm east west for all five diamonds.


All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. Typical antique diamonds with some natural inclusions and warmer hues that read warm to gray to the eye and at times a bit frosty. The smallest end stone has some nibbles to one girdle. So it still appears complete / round to the eye but the surface is frosty / unpolished there. No other nicks but some of the frosty inclusions cover almost half the stone on two of them and this is slightly eye visible. The outside edge prongs are worn but the diamonds had the prongs tidily reinforced on each end holding the diamond securely.

Shank is sturdy with some rub marks to the vertical scrolled edges on both sides from stacking. 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. : )

Thanks so much for looking at my items!
