History is full of transformations. Old things made anew, passed down from generation to generation, remodeled to suit the wearer of the day. Wedding dresses altered to suit new brides, baby bassinets updated with bumpers, all the good things.

Here is a perfect example of a heirloom made new and now vintage once again. A diamond cluster ring made up of 9 Old European cut diamonds with the most spectacular flash and liveliness. I don’t know how these diamonds, which were surely cut around 1860-1870, ended up in this ring, and I doubt anyone ever will. Was it a ring in yellow gold that someone wanted remade in white? Were they diamonds from someone’s great-grandmothers brooch, split between children and passed down? Perhaps they were just gathered from hither and yon to make this ring?

The center stone of this ring is a wonderful cushion cut stone that measures 4.5x4.5x3 mm and weighs about .4 carats, the other 8 are about .10-.12, for a total diamond weight in this ring of about 1.22 carats, the stones are all very clean and white, in the F/G, VS-Si range. The ring is fully hallmarked as having been made in Birmingham, England in 1988, the makers mark is ‘CLM’ and it has ‘750’ for 18 karat gold. The ring measures 11.3 mm north to south and 13 mm across at the face and sits 4.5 mm off the finger at the highest point, it narrows to 2 mm at the back of the band. This size 5.75 ring weighs 3 grams.
