Edwardian 18kt/Platinum Diamond Cluster Ring 0.57ct center
A lovely diamond cluster ring from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! This beautiful piece is crafted in 18kt yellow gold topped with platinum, and adorns a flower-like centerpiece of sparkling diamonds. An old European Cut diamond weighing 0.57ct adorns the center, displaying a beautiful natural hue that almost resembles a light fancy yellow diamond. The stone rests in a yellow gold bezel setting and is encircled by a border of twinkling old Rose Cut diamonds, which are bead set in platinum, creating a wonderful two-tone appeal. A fine airline cutout gives the impression that the yellow diamond "floats" at the center, a subtle but elegant detail. Resting on either shoulder is a delicate accent Rose Cut diamond, and surrounding every stone is fine milgrained detail, the perfect finishing touch! A smoothly polished gold band graduates slightly towards the back, completing the beautiful mixed metals design. Stamped inside of the shank is "0.57" indicating the center stone carat weight. A stunning Edwardian piece, it would look beautiful worn on special occasions, or it could make a unique diamond engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring is a finger size 7, but it could easily be re-sized. The diamond flower cluster measures a little less than 1/2" in diameter, and rests approximately 1/8" above the finger when worn. The tapered band measures 1.5mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the yellow gold and platinum setting and all of the diamonds are intact and securely set. There is evidence of prior resizing on the back of the band, creating a very slight darkened mark, however it is not noticeable when worn.
