I am selling an assortment of vintage to antique jewelry and rings which I have hunted for and gathered from around the world. Some examples seen in the last photo - thanks for stopping by!


Current antique jewelry trends: old mine cut daisy cluster, antique diamond gypsy, stackable antique diamond bands. I can't seem to get enough of these and they always seem to sell quickly and consistently.

Awesome glittering French antique daisy cluster ring holding a chunky center mine cut diamond in prongs slightly elevated and surrounded by eight additional old mine cut diamonds in a halo for a total carat weight 1 to 1.2 carat. Timeless and wearable, this is the classic version and all original antique.

Found in Paris, this French antique piece is in 18k gold and topped in Platinum, hallmarked for both. It has a wonderful setting, large footprint and a beautiful sparkle with the chunky old cut diamonds. Besides the halo of chunky old mine cuts, the shoulders are raised and are also set with diamonds so the ring splays across with finger with amazing glitter. 18k rosy gold shank in rich antique gold.

The perfect stacker, and also a beautiful worn alone. This one is in a larger finger size.

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


Size 9 3/4. The ring face is 11mm north south and stands 6mm off the finger. From shoulder to shoulder where the diamonds are set is 17mm wide. It weighs 4.4g.

Exact depths vary and I would not remove them from the setting to get exact measurements but the reputable seller I purchased it from estimated 1 to 1.2 carat total weight in diamonds . The center diamond is about 4mm and around .3 carat, and the eight halo diamonds are around 2.5mm to 3mm with the one in each shoulder measuring 1.5mm. The reputable source I purchased it from estimated it at 1 to 1.2 carat total weight in diamonds which aligns with the measurements, again without removing the diamonds we can't be exact. Many of the stones, especially the center, have high crowns, nice chunky cuts.


All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. These are the typical antique diamonds with some slightly warm hues, including the center stone and some faint natural inclusions. Most are frosty, only one has some tiny pinhead carbon specks. The largest center diamond has some needle inclusions on the outside edge. One of the smaller stones in the halo is cut shallower than the others and has flakes of loss to the underside giving the stone a frosty or icy appearance as that reflects through the stone. One of the other smaller stones also has some inclusions carrying up to the surface at one of the edge facets leaving a crease at the surface. The inclusions do not interrupt the tables of the stones but this can be seen by the eye if you study the stone from the side and catch the surface in a reflection of light while studying it up close. They still appear complete in shape, filling the setting as the girdle is not interrupted to wear any stones are out of round / or out of their cushioned shape. A worn prong here or there to keep an eye on over time, expected on pieces of this age in original condition. They each still have multiple prongs with length to hold each stone securely, and the center stone is extra secure with really long prongs. But Due to age - please note this is not a mint condition item.

I just noticed in my pics, it sits a little crooked, this is only because it is too large for me. The ring is still sturdy and perfectly formed so it would wear straight on the right size finger : )

Thanks so much for looking at my items!

A note about antique diamonds:
The whole "4 C's" of cut, color, clarity, carat didn't come about until the 1940s so prior to that and especially on antique pieces, there was not as much emphasis placed on those things. (Sure people probably appreciated a certain look of a certain diamond as it appeared to the eye but it was not a graded scale like we have today.)
So it is difficult to judge antique stones against modern day diamonds and their grading system. No two old cuts are the same as they were crafted in times lacking any modern standards. The diamond cutters of the time were experts at hand cutting each stone to enhance it which means that even lower color grades can be cut to appear whiter.
It is also interesting that "lower graded" diamonds in today's scale system, were some of the best on the market during this period! So it is less about their grades and more about the unique play of light and color that each one can offer.
I read one article that put it nicely: “When searching for the perfect old cut diamond (for you), you need to view them through different eyes as you would for a modern diamond. Laboratory grading reports don’t offer too much information in regards to the individual beauty or sparkle of an antique diamond. Antique diamonds are judged more on the individual character and uniqueness that each one potentially offers.”
Often there are variations of diamonds in the same piece as the goldsmiths created pieces with the stones they had available to them.
Fun facts!
