Victorian Five Old Mine Diamond Ring 15k/Silver c. 1880
The dark sparkle of these five super old cut Old Mine diamonds gives this ring such mystery and sense of age. This is a Victorian ring circa 1880, possibly earlier, set in 15k yellow gold and silver. The silver has a great deal of patina to it, lending the diamonds some of their color. This patina could be removed but I don't recommend it--it is part of the history of the ring! The diamonds weigh approximately .50ctw with I-K Color and SI1-SI2 Clarity. Though they photographed somewhat warm in tone, they are actually more grey in person. Gorgeous and old old old!
This ring is currently a size 5.75 and can be resized as needed. Stamped with partially legible "15ct" and acid-tested for metal content. Illegible maker's mark. Measures 4.8mm at the widest. Weighs 2.4 grams.
