A-shimmer with the unmistakable glimmer of old hand cut Diamonds, this captivating old 'half hoop' style five stone Diamond ring is sure to enchant all who see her! The old Diamonds are hand faceted in the cushion style which dates them to the 19th century which large, cutely uneven facets, each with it's own personality and shewing that antique charm that we so LOVE. The stones measure at approximately 1.20ct combined (0.16: 0.25: 0.40: 0.25: 0.16) and are 'perfectly imperfect' as many olden Diamonds are with rough girdles and the centre one having a 'natural' inclusion which breaks the surface but is almost hidden under a claw.
Dating to around the turn of the 20th century, this ring is entirely hand crafted, from the faceting of the olden Diamonds to the fashioning of the mount with pretty carved scrollwork to the band which starts at the shoulders and continues down the sides of the 18ct yellow Gold shank.
There has been repair work to the claws which must have own with age, but all is secure and ready to wear. The ring size is an 'N' or '7' but could be adjusted to suit and in doing so we will thicken the band to the centre back.
