Story

Wish to make a dramatic entrance sporting a BIG diamond look at a great value? Then this antique 14k yellow gold halo ring is for you.

Employing those wondrous old mine cut diamonds prized for their fire and personality, thirteen (13) of these desirable diamonds make their way into your heart. Now, what exactly is an old mine cut diamond? Often used in 18th and 19th century Georgian and Victorian jewelry, these gems are brilliant cut diamonds just as lively and sparkling as modern brilliants cuts...sometimes even more so. The gem has an overall configuration not round, but rather can be somewhat oval, square-like or cushion shape. In addition, the old mine cut has what is referred to as an open culet – the area at the bottom where the facets come together and leave a small flat surface.

Taking on the ring form known as a halo or cluster ring, a centered old mine cut diamond of an estimated .79 carats (J-K color; SI2 clarity) flashes in a lively prismatic dance of light. The corps de ballet of twelve (12) like-minded old mine cuts of an estimated total .72 carats (I-J color; SI2 clarity with nothing visible to the eye) twirl their mesmerizing adagio of shimmer and shine to the allegro of the gifted ballerina in the center. In all, a total estimated diamond weight of 1.51 carats does a dance of the century.

Date: Circa 1890.
