Fabulous Statement ring, 18ct gold, silver, rose cut diamond & green paste ring
A large, Antique? Diamond scroll design ring, featuring eight, rose-cut Diamonds, mounted in a silver setting with a central green paste stone, beautifully made in 18ct yellow gold and silver. The gemstones are mounted in a silver scroll design central setting that tapers to an 18ct yellow gold shank, with engraved shoulders.
The ring looks Victorian, but is in a good, strong condition, so I believe it is a reproduction or a restoration piece.
The diamonds are rose cuts (rose cut diamonds are one of the original diamond cuts, the rose cut diamond dates back to the early 1500s. With anywhere from three to 24 triangular facets, rose cut diamonds peak into a dome or kite-shape. This structure resembles the soft curve of a rose petal, hence its name!)
