This stunning Victorian Diamond cluster ring is made from lovely antique 18ct Gold and 9 old European cut Diamonds. The central Diamond is slightly larger than the rest and is approximately 0.20ct alone, with the remaining halo of Diamonds creating a total of 0.60 to 0.65 carats in total.
The Diamonds themselves are beautifully bright and have an excellent fire within them. In fact I don't think I've ever seen Diamonds cut like this, this size, with such intensity and liveliness before!
Circa 1850. The old european cut Diamonds have a great distinctive personality! They don't have that glitzy bright white sparkle that modern round brilliant cut Diamonds have, but rather a deeper and more dazzling twinkle. Somehow with this ring you get much more intense flashes of light than you would with a modern ring, and this special type of sparkle is far more be-witching...
So many things with this ring are just right. For instance the size is big enough to be eye-catching but is still very wearable. The detail on the shoulders is subtle but gives it an undeniable charm. And the pretty claw setting means the side profile is also absolutely gorgeous too!
As Diamonds are the hardest natural material known to man it makes sense that we use them as our most precious and heart-felt gifts. This ring is both beautiful and practical to wear. It has a comfortable 2mm band and a low profile so it won't catch on your clothes and is suitable for a lady on the go. It would make a perfect engagement ring for anyone lucky enough to wear it.

CONDITION: Very Good to Excellent
This beautiful Victorian Diamond Cluster Ring is in amazing antique condition. All of the Diamonds are original antique old European cut Diamonds, and they are all absolutely pristine with no chips, cracks, nibbles or scuffs. The Diamonds are all beautifully bright and clearly well cut as they're very lively! The gemstones are all 100% secure in their settings and the subtle detail to the shoulders of the band is still in lovely condition for us to enjoy. The band has thinned ever so slightly at the very back and there is evidence of re-sizing on close inspection. The re-sizing looks as if it were done decades if not centuries ago and is almost invisible when worn, but it can be seen from the inside. We don't think this detracts from the sheer gorgeousness of this ring but only adds to her charming history.
