Antique Victorian 1.2ct Diamond Belcher Set Engagement Ring

They were in the basement of a wine shop down a narrow alley-way in Paris. It was nearing midnight as they tasted their third glass of wine, this one from the French Auvergne region. Her cheeks were rosy and his eyes were all over her, her dark blonde hair, scattered freckles, and adorably wide grin. They talked about the wine, pretending to know anything about it, using words like lacing, woody, and unctuous. They were celebrating one year of being together and thought that touring The City of Lights sounded delicious and decadent. She was telling him a story about getting lost in Paris when she visited years back. He was listening intently as he pulled a small red ring box from his jacket pocket. She slowly stopped speaking, letting her sentence end in the middle, as speechlessness took her over. She watched him open the box and then he said, “I want to marry you. Will you do me the honor?”  Her eyes dashed back and forth between his blue irises, blissful. She said yes so loudly the manager came down to make sure they were all right. He slid the ring on her finger, as she gazed at it in utter amazement. Their host brought them a complimentary bottle, this one from the Alsace region. A little while later, the newly engaged couple walked to their hotel room, hand in hand, cheek to cheek, watching as her ring captured and reflected every light in the city.  

This antique Victorian diamond solitaire ring was handcrafted in London, around 1880. It features a stunning Old European cushion cut diamond that measures 7 x 6.3 x 4 mm. The clean and bright 1.2 carat diamond is belcher set in 18 karat gold. This piece is hallmarked and bears the crown, meaning it was made in England, the number, ‘18’, indicating the gold purity content, a crown, for the London Assay Office, and the letter date, which is no longer legible. This ring weighs 5.2 grams and is a size 9.  

For a marvelous engagement ring, or the best surprise you’ll ever gift her, this piece of the Victorian Era will show her how often you think of her, and how special she is to you. Oh, and by the way, this ring would be equally as stunning on a man as on a woman!
