Victorian Era OMC Diamond Belcher Claw Engagement Ring in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A charming, Victorian-era, Belcher claw ring, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose six, tapering prongs hold a glittering, 1/3 carat, old mine cut diamond. The belcher setting is a simple, elegant style, named for its creator, Thomas Belcher— this one is especially graceful, with long, rounded, cutaway sections that give the ring face a floral appearance and create an abundance of light behind its diamond. This ring is weighty, with a tapering profile. It is well suited to all genders, and it would make a wonderful engagement ring.
Old mine cut diamonds are cut by hand and they are beloved for their unique attributes, which include irregular facets, off-round shapes, small tables and open culets— these old darlings are tall and chunky by nature, and the open culet creates a pupil-like facet at the center of the diamond's "eye." Old cut diamonds have a soulful sparkle that new diamonds can't rival.
