An exquisite bright white 0.25ct diamond graces this beautifully feminine Victorian 18ct gold Belcher that bears clear hallmarks for London in 1897.
The diamond is an Old European Cut which is the predecessor of the modern brilliant cut and this lovely gemstone is round in shape and beautifully sparkly. It sits securely in the heart of the domed claw setting flanked by decorative carved lines at the sides that lead around the shoulders. A comfortable D-shaped band completes this graceful period ring that is smooth to the touch and sits snugly on the finger.
Perfect for daily wear, a ring that evokes a world of bygone elegance, the perfect addition to any antique jewellery collection.
