My favorite new acquisition this week: a bold, beautiful ring dating to about 1780. The split shoulders, the variegated turquoise, the planes of that big table-cut diamond? All perfectly considered. Reminder: you have to take special care to never (EVER) let water get between the diamond and the foil sparkling behind it. This is not intended to be an everyday engagement ring. It's a special-occasion treasure, and you gotta treat her RIGHT.
14k gold (tests), silver, 6.7mm x 4.3mm table cut diamond, 10 2.2mm turquoise cabochons
Very good - appears to have either had the shoulders mended or perhaps replaced; visible mark on the shank from a previous resizing
8.5, can be resized; 1.46cm x 1.2cm head, 3.2mm shank
1714 — 1837
