Antique diamond buckle ring made in 1906


The buckle design is a traditional design seen in jewellery for centuries and was very popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, and here is a lovely antique buckle ring that is set with diamonds.

Made in 18 carat gold in London in 1906, the ring measures 9.1mm wide at the buckle section and is set with two mine cut diamonds that total 0.12 carats. Mine cut diamonds are also known as cushion cut diamonds thanks to their somewhat "cushion" shape to them, and have the added charm of being cut by hand over a century ago.

This ring sits so lovely and flat on the finger, and with such an elegant design and sparkle given from the diamonds, it will so easily suit being worn on any finger.

Antique diamond buckle ring made in 1906

Antique diamond buckle ring made in 1906. This antique buckle ring is set with two genuine antique mine cut diamonds.

What is a mine cut diamond? What is a cushion cut diamond?

At the start of the 18th century, a great leap forward emerged with the “invention” of the new 58-facetted diamond. At the time, these were the closest resemblance to today’s brilliant cut diamond. These are referred to as old mine cut diamonds, or “old miners” as well as “cushion cut diamonds” . These were cut often squarish or cushion shaped, with quite a steep angle on the crown and pavilion. This was to maximise weight retention in the diamond. As well as these features, the “old miners” often had quite a large culet or collet, the horizontal base formed by the blunting of a point when the stone is cut as a brilliant.



What does buckle jewellery mean?

There are a few schools of thought on the buckle meaning, however it is generally accepted that it represents an unbreakable bond between two people. The buckle design was a popular design in jewellery from the Georgian and Victorian eras.
