18ct yellow gold Victorian antique diamond engagement ring

Here is such a stunning and elegant 18ct yellow gold Victorian antique diamond engagement ring that is set not only with the five main diamonds, but looking closely reveals eight smaller diamonds set between.

Measuring 19.5mm across by 7mm wide at the centre, this diamond engagement ring sits perfectly on the finger and will also suit having a wedding band alongside.

The five larger European cut diamonds total an impressive 2.18 carats, and are G to H in colour and Vs to Si in clarity meaning that they are in the white range of diamonds with no eye visible inclusion and of course have the added charm of being genuine antique cut European cut diamonds.

Then there are the eight rose cut diamonds set between each European cut diamond and these total 0.04 carats and add not only an extra sparkle, but an added charm and character that only an antique ring has.

Looking at the side of the ring shows the most incredible scroll work on both sides that is absolutely captivating and will take your breath away. It is detail such as this that has been done by hand over a century ago that is another reason why there is nothing quite like a genuine antique diamonds engagement ring adorning your finger to wear with pride.

From all angles, this is such a mesmerising and spectacular diamond engagement ring that will always be loved, admired and cherished.

During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus. This was an attempt to change the earlier old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut and these stones can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone. The culets (the point at the bottom of the diamond) became smaller, as it was realised that light could “leak” out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury with further modifications through the century.

The rose cut diamond was a much earlier cut that unlike any other diamond cut has a flat base and a pointed top somewhat akin to a pyramid shape. Both the European cut diamond and rose cut diamond are being cut today, however none with the charm and character of those cut quite literally centuries ago.
