The Edwardian period between 1901 and 1910 was one of elegance and grandeur as it was a new beginning after the passing of Queen Victoria as well as the start of a new century that resulted in a new style of jewellery that was part reminiscent to the Victorian era, as well as a “new” style unto itself as can be seen here in this truly delightful antique diamond ring right from the Edwardian era.
All hand made in 18ct yellow gold and platinum, the style of this diamond ring is sensational and looks fabulous on the finger. Like many other antique diamond rings, it is not just about the diamonds, rather it is about the style and setting that makes an antique ring so unique and special. This particular diamond ring is set with 5 round European cut diamonds which were the forerunner to today’s round modern brilliant cut diamond as well as having 10 rose cut diamonds. All of these diamonds combine to have a total diamond weight of 0.52 carats.
Looking closely at the setting you will see even more charm and character in this Edwardian era diamond ring with the wonderful milgrain setting along the edge of the rose cut diamonds and the settings of the other 4 diamonds. Milgrain setting is the very charming “crimping” that can be seen somewhat similar in appearance to the edge of a coin and shows the extra attention to detail.
From left to right the ring measures 5.3mm across by 16mm in length and looks sensational and so elegant on any finger. This is a stunning antique diamond ring that could easily be for a multitude of occasions and would also make a very unique and very special example of an antique diamond engagement ring with a difference.
