This ring is a stunning example of Victorian design. Simple yet striking with a single old cut Diamond set in a traditional "gypsy" or star setting, it's a handsome find!
It was crafted from 18ct Yellow Gold during the mid to late 1800's, during the reign of Queen Victoria, and is full of authentic antique charm and character. The Diamond is not perfect like a modern round brilliant cut is but rather a slightly off-round shape, and beautifully bright and sparkly!
The band itself measures 7mm at it's widest and tapers down to a comfortable 4mm at the back.
A beautiful yet practical item this ring has stood the test of time- testament to it's fine craftsmanship and quality materials.
As Diamonds are the hardest of gemstones it's a great choice for durability and would make an excellent engagement, wedding or dress ring for daily wear.

MATERIALS: Diamond, 18ct Gold.
HALLMARKS: Maker's Mark "S.H & C.H", Birmingham Assay. The Crown indicates Gold, and "18" the purity of 18ct. Partial Date Letter.
CONDITION: Very Good
For an item over 150 years old this ring is in superb condition. The Diamond is original and intact with no chips, nibbles or abrasions. Although the date letter is partial the hallmarks are easily read and date it as an authentic antique. The band does show signs of light wear in that the Gold has taken on a soft satin-like sheen rather than the high polish of newer Gold, and the band has thinned ever so slightly at the back. Nevertheless we have a very robust, durable and beautiful Victorian ring that is sure to make someone smile every time they wear it. In very good wearable condition.
