Georgian 2.5ct Old Cut Diamond Cluster Ring
DATE: Georgian, c.1830
This magnificent Georgian diamond cluster ring is set with a gorgeous old pear cut champagne diamond, surrounded by a cluster of old mine cuts - total diamond weight 2.5 carats. Resting on a rococo style band, the head was once closed backed but has since been opened (quite some time ago) to enhance the colour and brightness of the principal stone. It dates to c.1830, modelled in 15k yellow gold with the silver settings typical of the era.
Principal 1.45 carat Old Pear Cut Diamond - approx. 1 carat of Old Mine Cut Diamonds
Head: 15.5 x 12.5mm - Width of band: 2.2mm
Dutch 585 import marks (later added)
Very good, some light wear commensurate with age and use. A small chip to the girdle of the main diamond.
