This antique diamond engagement ring not only has all the charm and character of being hand made over 150 years ago, but is set with the earlier mine cut diamonds that are so sought after today. Sometimes these antique mine cut diamonds are also called "cushion cut" diamonds due to the somewhat cushion shape that they have, and they were the first truly brilliant cut diamond and these ones sparkle so beautifully. With the three diamonds having a total weight of 1.05 carats, the way the diamonds are supported by the claws gives the diamonds not only the maximum amount of light to enter and dance through each diamond, but the setting also adds to the character of the ring so beautifully. With a lovely band that tapers in width, this is such an elegant example of a genuine antique diamond engagement ring from the Victorian era. Stock# ES9160 Circa: 1870 $4,400
