ABOUT:
A bright and sparkly rose cut diamond cluster ring with larger oval rose cut in the middle surrounded by a halo of smaller rose cuts in little petal shapes. French antique piece in 18k gold with a warm rosy patina. The diamonds are set in silver as was customary for the time to set diamonds in a white metal.

A bit of spotting to the foil back of the center stone and some cloudy spots but overall still quite white. The center stone has some nibbles on one edge. Typical antique rose cuts with irregular shapes and facets. The inside of the ring face looks like it was maybe repaired or opened so I think perhaps it was re-foiled? It reads nice and bright compared to the many warmer hued foiled rose cuts out there, albeit a bit cloudy. The back of the ring face is a bit blunt when rubbing against the finger. Shank is slightly out of round but this is not seen while wearing.

Partial hallmark but it is mostly worn. French piece in 18k gold which is the standard there.

MEASUREMENTS:
Size 8 1/4. The ring face is 12.5 by 11mm. The center diamond is about 5.5mm and the smaller are around 2mm. Exact depth is unknown but using online estimates I'm getting around .8 carat total weight. It weighs 2.95 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 : )
