Victorian 14kt Black Tracery Enamel Diamond Ring 1.00ct
An exquisite diamond ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This gorgeous 14kt gold ring features a stunning old European cut diamond at the center, which weighs 1.00ct with J color and SI1 clarity. The diamond is incredibly lively and sparkles beautifully when worn, catching the light with every turn! It rests in a crown-like box setting, suspended within a series of raised prongs. Completing the design are black tracery enamel accents that decorate the sides of the prongs and the setting in a zig-zag pattern. Stamped inside the smooth gold shank is a small hallmark symbol. The ring was appraised in April 2017 by an independent and accredited GIA Graduate Gemologist, and has a stated retail replacement value of $8,500.00. A gorgeous Victorian era piece, it looks outstanding in person, and could make a very special engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.25, but could easily be re-sized up or down. The diamond rests approximately 1/4" above the finger when worn. The tapered band measures 5mm wide at the shoulders and 2.5mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, and only minimal surface wear to the black tracery enameling. The diamond is intact and securely set.
