Antique engagement ring in 18 carat gold

There is something so special about wearing an antique engagement ring on your finger, and here is a very beautiful antique diamond engagement ring that was hand made with so much attention and skill that will have you admiring it each and every time that you look at it.

Dating from the early 1900's, it was made in 18 carat yellow gold and is set with five antique European cut diamonds that total 0.90 carats and give off a wonderful sparkle. The ring measures 4.3mm wide at the centre by 16.6mm across, and then has the most beautiful scroll work detail on the sides that shows just how much time and attention went into making this ring entirely by hand over a century ago.

This is a wonderful example of an antique engagement ring, and one that will be loved and cherished for a lifetime.



Antique engagement ring in 18 carat gold

Antique engagement ring in 18 carat gold and set with European cut diamonds. This antique diamond engagement ring was hand made in the early 1900's.

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.
