Victorian Era Five Stone OMC Diamond & Turquoise Ring in 18k Gold

* * SOLD * *

A Victorian-era, five-stone ring, modeled in 18k gold, with an upright, architectural aesthetic that's enlivened by by a series of soulful old gems. This band is set with two, chubby, old mine cut diamonds, and three, round, untreated turquoise cabochons of slightly different blue-to-green hues. The unique aging of its color is one of our favorite things about antique turquoise— a more frequently touched gem will usually darken faster than an untouched gem.

A Victorian-era, five-stone ring, modeled in 18k gold, with an upright, architectural aesthetic that's enlivened by by a series of soulful old gems. This band is set with two, chubby, old mine cut diamonds, and three, round, untreated turquoise cabochons of slightly different blue-to-green hues. The unique aging of its color is one of our favorite things about antique turquoise— a more frequently touched gem will usually darken faster than an untouched gem. The diamonds that accompany these cabochons have the off-round shape, small high tables, and open culets that make this our favorite diamond cut. This ring's five stones are bead-set into deeply-graved, square panels. The substantial half round shank tapers toward the base. This is marked 18ct, and with a smith's cartouche that reads GW. It would make a lovely wedding band and it is an admirable stacker!
