Transitional Times: Antique Diamond Cluster Ring
The jewelry of the later decade of the Victorian age and the early ones of the Edwardian era sometimes blurred the boundaries of the aesthetic. The similarities of the styles were most apparent in classic pieces such as this marvelous 18k yellow gold cluster ring.
A sky of gold is home for a constellation of twenty-four (24) shining stars of precious diamonds…23 old mine cuts and 1 brilliant cut add up to an estimated diamond weight of 1 carat or a bit under with J-L color and SI clarity.
A pierced under gallery sports round open portals to the sky dotted with the celestial wonders. Indents of ionic scrolls mark the shoulders with an air of classical antiquity reaching to achieve the status of the timelessness of the universe.
