18ct yellow gold antique Victorian diamond ring made in 1888
This antique diamond ring is set with three antique European cut diamonds. The forerunner to the modern round brilliant cut diamond, the European cut diamond has had a massive resurgence in popularity recent years. With the same 58 facets as a round brilliant cut diamond, as they were cut by hand and to maintain diamond weight, they often have steeper crown and pavilion angles than there modern counterpart. Antique diamond rings such as this are practical to wear everyday as the diamonds are set low into the band.
