Victorian Era OMC Diamond & Pearl Gypsy Star Band in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A charming, turn-of-the-century gypsy band, modeled in 18k yellow gold, and set with three gems— two creamy, natural pearls and a small old mine cut diamond. These gems are each mounted in a beautifully hand-graved, star-shaped seat. The ring's shoulders are embellished with arrow-like, engraved details. The engraving itself is deep, bold, and masterful. This wide band tapers toward the base and bears a full series of English hallmarks (Birmingham, 1901). It would make an ideal wedding band, and it stacks admirably with other pieces.
US 8 1/2. This ring can be resized; to add resizing to your order, please visit our services page.
Ring face measures approx 7.1 mm; ring measures approx 5.5 mm at the shoulder and tapers to approx 3 mm at the base; pearls measure approx 2.8 mm; diamond measures approx 2.1 mm (about 5 points).
Before pearls were being cultured, in vast numbers, they were among the rarest and most valuable gemstones. It is uncommon, now, to find beautifully-round, natural pearls mounted in jewelry. These soulful, antique pearls were made in nature, by an oyster, without the interference of men.
