Antique Edwardian 18CT 18K Gold & Diamond Ring, 5 Stone, Boat, Chester, 1911, Wedding, Engagement, Anniversary, Size 5, Superb! #b555
I present today this exquisite antique Edwardian gold and diamond ring!
This beautiful antique ring is comprised of rich 18CT (18K) yellow gold. The face of the ring is "boat" shaped and holds five round, old European cut diamonds. Both the top and bottom of the setting have five round cut outs, allowing maximum light to reach and highlight the fabulous diamond stones. The shoulders of the ring have diagonal and horizontal engraving, adding extra beauty to the ring when viewed from the side. It's a superb and elegant piece!
The ring measures about a size 5 and it weighs 2.3 grams. It is fully hallmarked on the inside of the ring band with British marks of a crown for gold, an "18" for 18CT (18K) gold, the sideways Chester city symbol mark, and with a "L" in script for the year 1911. There is a maker's mark, but it is not legible. All five diamonds tested positively as diamonds on a Presidium gem tester. The sizes of the diamonds include one 2mm/.03 carat weight center stone, two 1.8mm/.05 carat weight stones on either side of the center stone, and two 1mm/.01 carat weight stones on each end, for a total carat weight of .09.
This ring is just exquisite! It would make a wonderful wedding or anniversary band, or even an alternative engagement ring. It's a great value on a superb piece of antique diamond jewelry! A comparable modern ring would likely cost twice as much and would definitely lack the uniqueness of this marvelous piece. The ring is in exceptional condition and I could not detect any flaws with it. It's ready to wear out of the box and to surprise the love of your life! I'm certain it will make some lovely lady very pleased!
