This beautiful ring features an old 1.66ct old rose cut diamond. However, the cut means that spread of the ring is much larger than the carat weight would suggest, giving it a real wow factor on the finger. The faceting is beautiful, and the stone has a shimmering intensity. It has a cut down silver setting with a foiled back. The band is 18ct gold with foliate pierced detailing down the shoulders and a reeded shank. The exact history of this ring is unclear; it features an old, traditionally cut, stone (late 1800’s) but it's been sympathetically re-set in the in a traditionally Georgian style.
