Edwardian Pearl & Diamond Cluster Ring
What makes a fine natural freshwater pearl? One such factor is that the greater the difference between the darkest and lightest highlights (shadow and light) on the surface, the better the pearl. A finer pearl has a surface almost like a mirror – when moved, a vague image or your reflection can be seen, the pearl is of better quality.
Both of those qualities are present in this natural freshwater button pearl (Unio species) of 8.14 by 8.09 mm. With a white color, very fine luster and an excellent surface, this wonder of nature holds its own against a surround of ten (10) old European cut diamonds with one about .78 carats and the other large stone .73 carats. Two (2) additional old European cuts appoint the shoulders of this cluster ring for an estimated total diamond weight of 2.5 carats (H-I color range; VS2-SI1 clarity). A marvelous 18k yellow gold mount does justice to the gems. Please note the sunburst design on the underside of the ring.
A Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certificate for the pearl accompanies the ring.
Date: Circa 1910.
Measurements: 7/16 of an inch (1.5 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/8 of an inch (1.0 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 5.3 grams (3.4 dwt).
Ring Size: US 7 (UK N-1/2; Euro or Int. Circum. 54.4 mm; Japan 14; Int. Dia. 17.3) and easily can be 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. Grading has been done in situ and also may vary if stones are removed.
