Antique 5 stone diamond ring


Made in the Victorian era of the 1890's in 18 carat yellow gold, this ring will so easily suit any finger including making such a charming engagement ring.

Set with five European cut diamonds that total 0.24 carats, these diamonds have all the charm of being cut by hand well over a century ago. And not only are the diamonds so charming, but the actual setting that holds them as well as the carved shoulders adds to the charm and character of the ring even more.

Measuring 15.4mm across, this ring sits so delightfully on the finger, and will always be cherished.

Antique 5 stone diamond ring

Antique 5 stone diamond ring made in 18 carat yellow gold. This antique engagement ring was hand made in the late Victorian period of the 1890's. It is set with five antique European cut diamonds in a very elegant claw setting.

What is a European cut diamond?

During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus, and was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. 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 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. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
