This beautiful antique Diamond "gypsy"-style ring is made from 15ct Gold and dates from the late Victorian period.
With an old cut Diamond centre and twinkling rose cut Diamonds to either side this ring really does capture the splendour of an age gone by.
The term "Gypsy ring" refers to the way the stones are set, which was very popular during the 1800 and 1900's. Gypsy rings are experiencing a resurgence in popularity today, regularly being worn as dress rings, promise rings and even wedding rings!
Decorative star settings and the pretty scrolled shoulder detail add a charming antique finishing touch.
This beautiful antique ring has stood the test of time and as Diamonds are the hardest of gemstones it is suitable for daily wear, and would lend itself well to being worn as a wedding band or dress ring or daily wear.

For an item 124 years of age this beautiful Victorian ring has aged remarkably well. Although it's been worn before the Diamonds are in good antique condition with no chips or damage. It's possible the central stone is a newer replacement for a lost rose cut Diamond centre, but is also undoubtedly antique in origin. The Gold has taken on a softer Gold hue rather than the bright yellow you might see in a modern item, which we think is simply gorgeous.
There is some thinning to the back of the band, but it's certainly in good wearable condition and can be worn without issue for many years to come. Evidence of a re-sizing visible which has been done sympathetically so the large over-sized hallmarks are intact and easily read.
