This superb Turquoise and Diamond ring is a genuine antique and was crafted to the highest standards. It was made during the reign of Queen Victoria, and it certainly does have somewhat of a regal feel about it!
Here we have the most charming combination the bright cerulean blue of natural Persian Turquoise, 18ct Yellow Gold and chunky Diamond spacers.
It's very rare that you find rings like these in such fantastic condition, but it's clear she's been treasured.
The detailed sides and gallery are crisp, and the openwork setting is is typical of Victorian designs. It lets light flow through the piece and demonstrates the skill and craftsmanship that went into making this extraordinary ring so beautiful!
The four Diamonds spacers are bright and sparkly with a combination of old mixed cuts, lending an unmissable sparkle to the piece which immediately draws the gaze in any light.
Two looks more like Rose cuts and two are more like old mine cuts but they do not exactly conform to these definitions we have today! It's truly a one of a kind piece, offered in gorgeous antique condition.
