This richly detailed and timelessly designed original vintage ring showcases a stunning old mine cut diamond richly accented with intricate filigree. Cut by hand well over a century in the past, the substantial 1.40ct old mine cut diamond is eye clean and displays bold sparkle as well as vividly colorful fire. The timelessly romantic 18k white gold antique mounting is gorgeously detailed. The lively diamond is perfectly complemented by looping filigree in the gallery and the shoulders.
The effect is truly romantic, an excellent choice for a stylish, meaningful, and enduring engagement or right hand ring! The large 1.40ct diamond is graded SI3 for clarity, and it is eye clean. The inclusions are white, and blend into the sparkle.They hide extremely well, even under close scrutiny. The diamond retains its full vibrant brilliance. The diamond is graded K for color and faces up beautifully.
Part of the diamonds antique charm, it does show a subtle hint of warmth when looking at the side, as is typical for diamonds from its time period. However, on the face up, the bright white reflections in the diamonds sparkle largely overwhelm the color. Looking straight down onto the stone the sparkle truly does mask the subtle color.
Generally it is in the white range of color, and, mounted in this solitaire setting it is difficult to notice any warmth. Furthermore, the ring has a natural white gold finish, without rhodium, which also greatly helps to keep the diamond appearing white. The natural white gold finish gives the ring a true antique look and looks perfect with this diamond.
As an old mine cut, the diamond has broad facets that create bold sparkle and an air of old world charm. The setting is made of solid 18k white gold. The setting is richly designed and textured, a testament to the artistry of the original maker.
The ring measures 8.9mm across (north south) and 6.3mm from finger to top. This gorgeous ring showcases its stunning diamond in an elegant design that will stay forever in style!
Charmingly antique and meaningfully historied, it is a perfect engagement ring or right hand ring! For additional details, please see below.
