Victorian Old Mine Cut Diamond Band

$2,000

This Victorian ring is made in 18k yellow gold with a single .32ct old mine cut diamond in a crisp diamond-shaped setting. The head of the ring is ever so slightly squared and the diamond - with its high crown - has a relatively high profile above its deep setting. An understated diamond solitaire, it would be equally lovely worn as an engagement ring, wedding band or, for someone of the more-is-more persuasion, as part of a fabulous ring stack. Made in the late 19th century but stamped with later Birmingham assay marks.
