ABOUT:

Personal collection release of one I love so much. Very unique figural Antique ring with a center pear / teardrop shaped rose cut diamond with 6 additional rose cuts in closed back silver settings. Three are in the ruffled crown above with one on each side and below. Beautiful leaf shoulders and scrolling shank continues all the way around. Some detailing to the ring butt / booty (as we say in the trade) as well. It is a just a bit too big for me and while it is somewhat sizable, I didn't want to alter the scrolled shank so I decided to let it go to a new home.

The piece is in 14k yellow gold with silver topped settings as was customary to set diamonds in a white metal. This piece is from the 1700s Georgian era, but the center round bezel set teardrop / pear shaped rose cut is a later addition. The center also is still antique but probably dates to the late 1800s, it has an open back. Beautiful patina, coloring and sparkle. Beautiful stacker or alone. Plenty of patina to the silver and the gold from age.

Typical antique diamonds with some natural inclusions, and some discoloration from age to the foil / closed back to the top and bottom diamonds but they are small and still catch the light for a nice sparkle. Some wear to the bezels and under magnification, the left and right side were reinforced. You can see the difference in patina at the top of the round bezel set diamond where it connects to the crown. This was where it was soldered but it is smooth, tidy and will patina in time. Under magnification you can also see some solder bubbles below the circular bezel but this is hidden in the recesses and is only seen when you study the bottom / inside edges under magnification. The crown and base are slightly curved to hug the center bezel, the piece is neat and tidy, sturdy and very wearable.

Antique box is not included.

No hallmarks remain but sold to me as 14k and tested to confirm.

MEASUREMENTS:
Size 7. The largest rose cut is about 4.1 by 3.5mm. The smaller diamonds are about 1.5 to 2mm. It weighs a sturdy 3.8 grams.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

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 glaring issues above and they are all still wearable.
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 : )
