Sea & Fire - Coral Diamond Ring
A shell pink or peachy coral cabochon has no finer companions that twelve (12) old mine cut diamonds. Each is between .11 to .12 points for a total estimated diamond weight of 1.32 carats. Their shimmering colors are G-H or better and sit in a 14k yellow gold mount.
The cluster ring proved ever popular in late 19th and early 20th century fashion with coral a more unusual choice for the centerpiece. Fine and even color for the coral as it is almost flesh-toned in hue with hints of peach. Hallmarked 14k.
Measurements: Just over 5/8 of an inch (1.7 cm) across at the widest part and sits up 1/4 of an inch (0.6 cm) from the finger. Currently a size US 8 (British P 1/2, Euro 18.00 - 18.25, 57.5 mm). Easily sized. Weighs 4.2 grams.
Date & Origin: Circa 1890 - 1900. Most likely American in origin.
Note: All diamond weights and grades are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
