Victorian Floral Motif Diamond Engagement Ring Yellow 18k Gold

The trading of diamonds can be traced back to India during the 4th century BC. It took until 1400 AD before diamonds began traveling West, and became coveted by Europe’s wealthiest residents.

The word “diamond” originates from the Greek word, “adamas” meaning, “unbreakable”. They are a unique stone as they’re the only gem composed of just one element – carbon, which resides inside a grid-like structure due to the way the gem forms. This atomic octahedral arrangement is what makes diamonds 58 times harder than anything else found in nature. Trace elements, making up no more than 0.05% of a diamond, defines the stone’s color.  

This antique diamond and gold ring holds three Old European cut diamonds set in 18 karat gold; it was hand crafted in England in about 1890-1900. The center stone weighs approximately .45 carats and is set in a modified 8-prong belcher setting makes it resemble the center of a delicate flower. The side stones weigh approximately .125 carats each, making the total carat weight of this ring is around .7 carats. The ring face measures 11.5 mm north to south and 16 mm across and it sits 4 mm off the finger with a band width of 2.0 mm at the back of the ring. It is a size 5.5 and weighs 6.1 grams. This piece has been professionally acid tested.  

This ring would be a fantastic engagement ring! It’s as beautiful and unique, just like the love of your life.
