Swirling Antique Rose Cut Diamond Engagement Ring, 18k Gold

     Here is a ring of substantial weight and celestial grace.  Set with a lively rose cut diamond that forms a shining sun which wraps its warm rays around the whole band.  This fascinating and unusual ring almost seems to be in motion, but in fact a solid and heavy 18 karat gold band holds this silver-set diamond firmly in place.

     This handcrafted ring is inscribed inside the band with the date '25 Septembre 1920'.  I actually think that this ring was inscribed a few decades after it was made, the style dates it more to about 1890.  The French engraving (and the fact that I bought it in Paris) imply that this ring is French in origin, however it is unmarked and so has been acid tested to verify the gold content.  

     The ring is set with a rose cut diamond that measures 4.5 mm across and is 1.6 mm deep.  The band is 9 mm wide north to south at the widest point and tapers to 4.2 mm at the back of the band, the diamond sits 5.2 mm off the finger.  It appears to have been sized down at some point and it's possible the mark was lost at this time, it is a size 7 but could be resized to suit, and weighs 6.1 grams.

     This ring would make a wonderful and unusual engagement ring. It is velvety soft with a great feel to the touch and is very comfortable on the hand.
