Edwardian Vintage Diamond Buckle Ring
This late Edwardian interpretation of the buckle ring is as august in weight as it is substantial in width. Solidly constructed of 18k yellow gold, the fully hallmarked ring displays a most distinctive look with its three-dimensional hasp and keeper.
A pair of glittering old mine cut diamonds (about 03 points and 10 points) flanks the keeper. Mounted in a setting developed in the late 1800s referred to as gypsy, the gems are placed into a recess until flush with the metal surface. Engraved designs in the shape of rays are cut around the diamonds in a star-like pattern. This fine detail creates the illusion of even greater shine and fire from each of the sparkling bright stones.
Measurements: 9/16 of an inch (1.2 cm) in width at buckle. Weight of 6.8 grams (4.4 dwt).
Ring Size: US 7 (UK N-1/2; Int. Dia. 17; Euro 54 mm; Japan 14) and can be easily sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.

Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
