This wonderful ring has great, cheeky style! The propeller shapes around each diamond were created when the jeweler used a graver tool to push the gold around the stone to form the prongs. It was a safer and more secure way to set gems, allowing men (and women) to go about their day without worrying that they might snag a prong and loose a diamond. It lets me do the same as I scour markets and antique stores seeking out treasures just for you.
This fabulous five-stone diamond ring was handcrafted in Chester, England, in 1882. It was made in 18 karat gold and showcases five old European cut diamonds set horizontally across the face. The sparkly round cut diamonds weigh approximately .10 carats altogether. The shoulders bear a few more details including a stylized heart design. The ring face measures 6.6 x 16 x 2.1 mm and the band width is 2.3 mm at the back. This beautiful ring is a size 7.25 US and it weighs 2.7 grams. This piece has been fully hallmarked. It bears the crown mark for England, the gold purity mark, “18”, the Chester origin mark, the date letter, “t”, and a maker’s mark, “P&S”.
This style was initially popular with men, and women soon followed suit. Not long after, these beautifully set rings were made for gentlemen and ladies. They were typically gifted as friendship bands from young girls to each other, or from husbands to their wives. This one would make a fabulous engagement ring or wedding band, especially for an active person.
