Having trouble parting with this one because I love stackable bands and this one makes such a great statement to layer in with other pieces. This five stone ring is set with old mine cut diamonds in graduating sizes in square bezels that step downward towards the shoulders. The ring face has a nice height to it making it a great stacker and you can see the chunky diamonds floating in the setting when viewed from the side. It is also substantial enough to wear it alone, with the white bezels making the ring appear even bigger than its carat weight.

No hallmarks remain but sold to me as 18k white gold. It is possible it is platinum, another popular choice for the period, but I don't have a reliably definitive test for that so I am selling it as white gold to be safe. The diamonds total around .85 carat.

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


The center diamond is about 4.5mm and the flanking diamonds are 3mm and then 2.5mm. I would not remove them from the antique setting for an exact measurement but estimated around .85 carat total weight, they are chunkier cuts, especially the center stone.

Size 5 1/2, the ring face is 6.2mm north to south, 20mm east west, 4.9mm tall of the finger. It weighs 3.6 grams.


Typical antique diamonds with some slight warmth, especially to one flanking the center diamond. One of the flanking diamonds has some frosty spots around the culet, slightly eye visible, that you can see when looking through the stone. They also have some natural inclusions. The center diamond and the warm one flanking it both have indented natural inclusions - 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. On the larger diamond it appears like a line with a small crease, and on the other almost like the area is chipped because the crease is a bit wider leaving the uneven unpolished area. Sounds awful but they are actually not super eye visible because they are tucked along the outside edges and do not face up, they don't seem to catch the light like some inclusions do - which is a credit to the diamond cutters of the time who were experts at hand cutting these old stones to highlight their best attributes. Prongs look good, with typical light wear to keep an eye on over time but none of the stones move.

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 : )
