Antique coral and diamond ring made in 1892


The combination of coral and gold and the sparkle of the diamond, all come together perfectly in this gorgeous ring from the Victorian era.

Made in Chester in 1892 in 15 carat gold, the colour of 15 carat gold so often has that wonderful warm colour that just isn't found in jewellery today.

Sitting in centre is a lovely 0.07 carat European cut diamond in a gorgeous star setting that adds to the charm of the ring even further. With natural coral on each side, the ring measures 6.1mm wide at the centre and tapers down to 2.9mm at the back.

This is such an elegant ring, and a great example of the beauty of jewellery of the late Victorian era.

Antique coral and diamond ring made in 1892

This antique coral and diamond ring made in 1892 was made in 18 carat yellow gold. In the centre sits a beautiful genuine antique European cut diamond.

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.
