A lovely 18ct gold diamond ring, in a classic late Edwardian 'gypsy' style. The front of the ring is claw set with five old-cut graduating diamonds. The central diamond weighs approximately 0.05ct, with the diamonds either side weighing approximately 0.03ct each, and the outer diamonds weigh approximately 0.02ct each. The diamonds are old-cut diamonds, which have a really interesting sparkle and catch the eye differently to the more modern brilliant cut. On either side of the diamonds is an ornately carved section.
The ring has a wonderfully clear hallmark, showing the ring was hallmarked in Chester in 1913. It does also have an engraving on the inside of the shank stating '1889', so possibly the ring was hallmarked at a later date to when it was made. It is in very good antique condition, with general wear and tear and scratches to the metal. The claws are in situ but have been worn quite flat. Please see the photographs for more details.
