SOLD--Edwardian Old Mine Diamond Three Stone Trilogy Ring 14k c. 1900
THIS PIECE HAS BEEN SOLD.
As I examined and photographed this ring, I fell deeply in love with it! This is turn-of-the-century Edwardian Old Mine cut diamond three stone ring with 14k white gold baskets and a 14k yellow gold band circa 1900. The first thing to note about these stones is the super intense sparkle, in every light this ring has been throwing rainbows all over the place. The second thing is that all three diamonds are very yellow--they aren't saturated enough to be graded as fancy yellow, but almost! The central stone has more color than the two side stones and weighs approximately .71ct with a Q-R Color, VS2 Clarity. The two side Old Mine cuts weigh approximately .50ctw and have O-P Color and VS2-SI1 Clarity. One side stone has weak blue fluorescence.
The person that belongs with this ring should get it because they want big sparkle and love the look of a warm color old cut diamond! I've known many ladies that like this and I include myself in that group, a warmer diamond is a beautiful thing. Don't get this ring hoping that it will look whiter in some lighting, because these diamonds will always look yellow and in certain lighting they are really yellow and it is GORGEOUS. The above photos are accurate representations of the color. The more I write about this ring, the more I want to keep it--it's a really special piece and has such a beautiful, dark mystery to it.
This ring is currently a size 7 and can be resized as needed. Not stamped or signed, but acid-tested for metal content. Measures 1/4" at the widest.
