Antique hand worked setting in 14K yellow gold in a classic early Victorian time period. This lovely ring is circa the early to late 1800's and set with a cabochon natural opal stone and accented with 4 old mine cut diamonds. The ring appears to be modeled after older rings from the early 1800 time period, or could be from that time period.
As is consistent with the period the cut on the diamonds and the quality of the stones is poor. The cabochon opal shows a lot of age related surface wear and two noted chips at the prongs. These chips may have existed when the stone was mounted as the stone is not loose or they may have occurred later in its life. This style ring was often used as a wedding ring and would make a lovely gift to a bride for the "Something Old" category of the bridal gift. Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Weight: 1.9 grams all inclusive
Main Stone: 7mm x 5.5mm x 3mm
Secondary Stones: 4 round old mine cut diamonds approx 2.3mm
Head Size: Approx 11.65mm wide and 12.67mm deep with a rise of 5.08mm
Shank Size at sizing Area: approx 1.25mm deep and approx .84mm thick
Notable: A nice antique piece showing its age and wear both to the main opal stone and the band. Band shows surface wear consistent with the age of the piece and the ring will need a further detailed cleaning. A comparable ring in 15 ct gold with another main stone sold for $850.00 so I believe I have this priced to move.
