Antique, extra heavy and still modern and quite edgy. Substantial high quality hand feel to this 18k solid gold cigar band ring that has been set with three old mine cut diamonds totaling around .8 carats. The chunky center stone measures about half a carat alone.

Very striking alone but also suitable for stacking and layering. I actually think this was a custom creation, perhaps taking granny's old cut diamonds and adding them to a later shank that was a solid band, as it doesn't seem looking at the fabrication, that it was made with stones originally. But wow do I love how it came out!

Found in France with their hallmark on the side for 18k gold. It has a warm patina with rosy highlights, in some light and especially when comparing with a more vibrant yellow gold, it reads as rose, just nothing like the vibrant pink rose gold of today.

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

Size: It sits between size 6 and 7 on my ring sizer mandrel, so measuring to the center as typical would make it technically a size 6 1/2, however with the surface area of the extra wide band, it seems to fit like a size 6
Weight: a very sturdy 14.4 grams

Ring face north south measurement: 12mm all the way around.
The gold is 1.6mm thick all the way around.

The center diamond is about half a carat and measures 5mm with a chunky cut. The sides stone are about 3mm each. I would not remove the stones for exact measurements but they do widen out some in the flush setting. Estimated total carat weight is around 0.8 carat.


There are some tool marks, unevenness to the bezels and a handful of small solder bubbles around the center stone which is why it seems the components were married. The center stone is quite a chunky cut and extends out the back of the ring face. I can feel it when I run my finger inside when off the finger, but I cannot feel it when wearing until the ring is spun. Even then it is more blunt than sharp with the larger open culet (so the underside of the diamond doesn't come to a pin point which would make it sharper).

The center diamond has a triangular dent / crevice along the outside edge. This is not glaringly noticeable when wearing because the shape appears complete and the table and its surrounding facets are in perfect condition, but when you study the one edge up close from the side, you can see the unpolished crease. I tried to accent this in photos which when zoomed will make it significantly worse than it appears in real life. But better to not have surprises. One of the smaller diamonds has a similar crease that is well polished so they do not appear frosty. Typical antique diamonds with some faint speck inclusions very slightly eye visible.

This one was very tough to photograph because the gold work is so large and shiny that it reflects its surroundings including tree leaves making the gold look green, etc. Aside from the solder bubbles there are some tool marks and direct light enhances the surface wear that is made more notable by the mirrored finish. In my opinion some of the photographs make it look worse than it does while wearing but I just had a hard time accurately capturing this one.

Substantial amount of gold and the diamonds don't budge.

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 : )
