Australian antique jewellery is becoming more and more sought after, and here is a very beautiful and stylish early Australian antique diamond ring by HF Hutton that somehow manages to also have such a contemporary look to it even though it was made well over 100 years ago.
HF Hutton was a famous jeweller working out of his workshop in Ballarat Victoria in the second half of the 19th century and became the most well known for his quality and craftsmanship of jewellery which can be seen here in this antique diamond ring.
Set with five rose cut diamonds that total 0.12 carats, the design alone of how they are set make the design so attractive and also incredibly easy to wear all the time day or night and always be admired.
At each end is a bar design, and from one across to the other, this distance measures 14.9mm by 6.1mm at the centre and tapers down in width to 3.1mm at the back.
Inside are the most perfect early Australian hallmarks that you will ever find, with not only the makers mark of Hutton, but the emu, 18 and boat. The 18 and boat both represent 18ct gold and the emu was actually used by a few early Australian jewellers including HF Hutton.
This is such an elegant and attractive example of early Australian antique jewellery and one that is not only beautiful but historical as well.
