The year was 1874, Winston Churchill was born, the son of a British Lord and an American socialite. Maybe Lord Churchill give his wife this ring to celebrate the birth of his son? Probably not, but a girl can dream! And since jewelry doesn’t tell any tales, there’s no way we will ever truly know.
What we do know for sure is that this gorgeous ring was hand crafted in Birmingham, England in 1874. We also know that it is set with 9 bright and sparkling Old European cut diamonds that glitter and sparkle with your every move. The center stone measures 5 x 4.65 x 3.8 mm and weighs approximately .75 carats, it is a lovely clean and white stone; it has a supporting cast of 8 smaller diamonds, each of which weighs approximately .14 carats. The total diamond weight of the ring is about 2 carats. The shank is crafted in 18 karat gold and is marked inside the band with the crown (England), the anchor (Birmingham), the number ’18’ (karat) and the letter z (1874). It has lovely carved shoulders and a thick shank. The ring is a size 7.75 US and my jeweler suggests that it won’t tolerate re-sizing by very much. The ring measures 11.9 mm north to south and across the face and narrows to 3 mm at the back of the band, it weighs 5.3 grams.
This fabulous diamond cluster ring would make a wonderful ring for any occasion, from the most important to ‘just because’!
