This stunning antique Diamond Solitaire is the perfect classic engagement ring!
It features a single 0.25ct old European cut Diamond set in an elegant 18ct Yellow Gold band, and White Gold crown-like claws that show off the Diamond perfectly.
It's difficult to date precisely because of there is no date letter hallmark, but this style; with a single Diamond and a narrow, elegant band, was popular throughout the late 18th Century and early 20th Century.
Solitaire Diamond rings have been popular since the late Victorian period, and all the way through the Edwardian and Art Deco eras, and is still the most well-loved style today. Simple, elegant and timeless!
Old European Diamonds are a cut differently to the modern brilliant Diamonds we see today, so they sparkle in a very different way. Modern Diamonds tend to have an even light dispersion with an almost star-like pattern that shine almost continuously, whereas an old European cuts are very unique and tend to have bold flashes of light, designed to twinkle and wink rather than all out shine. They are often referred to as "romantic" or "Old Hollywood" because of their unique vintage appeal.
This ring is not only beautiful but practical too with a comfortable 1.5mm band and an extremely low setting and the 8 claw setting is one of the most secure you can get.
