Rose cut diamonds and a single emerald form the cluster of this classic-with-a-twist late Victorian ring. Cluster rings are one of the most enduringly popular styles throughout recent history (by recent we mean the last 200 years or so). This particular ring features an unusual odd number of gems in its halo - the five rose cut diamonds also happen to be in star-shaped settings. Not only that, the cluster is arranged so that it appears to be tilting to one side rather than symmetrically straight up and down. Odd but effective and very attractive.
