Sleek and glowing, buttery 18k gold setting props up a very chunky pale yellow old mine cut diamond. I love how it is suspended in prongs to be viewed from all sides. This chunky stone measures over .9 carat and it has the most beautiful color. The pale yellow color adds a warmth against the glowing gold work. The color is evident as I look at it now in low ambient light. It is subtle and while the diamond quite fiery, it is warmer / softer than it is vibrant yellow - just delicious. The diamond seems to vary in hue based on the lighting but the pictures and video are true to life when it comes to how it wears in various conditions. I and many other collectors seek out stones like these instead of the more common whites.

As an added bonus, the forked prongs are in excellent condition makes this beauty ready for regular wear.

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

Size: 6 1/4
Diamond: The old mine cut is about 5.8mm with a chunky depth of 4.3mm, measuring from .9 to 1 carat.
Ring face: 8.3mm north south
Height off finger: 5.6mm tall.
Weight: 4g.


The diamond has a bruise. Sorrows sorrows but we see this sometimes in antique stones. While it appears complete in form, there are some shallow flakes of loss on one edge. The difference in texture there is evident as it is on the top side of the diamond and shows an unpolished area. Also under magnification I can see an indented natural inclusion just off the table facet - GIA defines this as a dent that occurs under the surface of a diamond as a result of the diamond cutter's decision not to polish it off, because doing so could end up harming the diamond so the cutters would work around it - this is not considered a defect or blemish. No dark carbon or silk inclusions and the stone has a wonderful fire along with its amazing hue.

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 : )
