Vintage Emerald Diamond Double Halo Ring 18k Gold

I have funny dreams sometimes. Once I dreamed I was in the V&A (the Victoria and Albert Museum in London) at night. No one was there and I wandered the halls and galleries in my pajamas, at my leisure. When I came to the jewelry hall, poof, like Cinderella, I found myself in a flowing ball gown, and all the cases that held the jewels were open, I could take and wear whatever I liked. Is it any wonder that I went directly to the Seringapatam Jewels? The ornate parure of emeralds and diamonds is set with the most gorgeous emeralds. The stones were given as a reward to Major-General George Harris following a Victory at the Battle of Seringapatam in India in 1799. Dressed to the nines, and for some reason, shoeless, I flitted through the rest of the museum, dancing with statues and marveling at Monet’s.

This fantastic ring would have fit in perfectly in my dream. Set with a gorgeous (trust me, the photos don’t do it justice, emerald is one of the most difficult stones to photograph!) oval faceted emerald, which is surrounded by two halos of sparkling brilliant cut diamonds. The emerald weighs approximately 1.41 carats and the 36 diamonds add up to about .84 carats. The face of the ring measures 18 mm north to south and 15.3 mm across, it sits 6.2 mm off the finger and narrows to 2.9 mm at the back of the band. This ring is marked with the French Owl mark and has been carefully acid tested as 18 karat gold. The ring is a size 7 and weighs 5.8 grams. Hand crafted in about 1950.

This fabulous cocktail ring comes with a full appraisal done by an accredited antique jewelry master gemologist. The full replacement value is $17,900.
