French Edwardian Flower Form Diamond Cluster Ring
* * SOLD * *
A lovely, Edwardian-era, old cut diamond halo ring, modeled in 18k yellow gold and platinum, whose form calls to mind an eight-petaled flower. This French cluster's primary gem is a chunky old mine cut diamond (approx .33 carats). This central diamond is surrounded by a bevy of old European cut diamonds— all of these charming, hand-cut stones are held in prongs, in the ring's crown-like, platinum head. The ring's shoulders are collared. Its yellow gold shank is substantial, and tapers slightly toward the base. We love this classic form, and the incredible, irregular sparkle these beautiful old diamonds create, playing off of one another! It would make an ideal engagement ring.
This is marked with two French hallmarks— a mascaron of a bearded man (indicating platinum purity), and an owl in an oval frame (indicating 18k gold purity). These marks are struck on the back of the ring shank.
