Platinum/14k yellow gold and diamond ring. Crafted from platinum-topped 14k yellow gold, this stunning piece showcases a cluster of Old Mine cut diamonds at its center, nestled within platinum collet settings that enhance their brilliance and fire. Engraved on the inside with the date "9th 1828," this ring offers a glimpse into its storied past, hinting at its origins in the Georgian period. However, we believe it was likely crafted in the late Victorian era, around 1890, as evidenced by the use of platinum topping on gold—a technique that foreshadowed the widespread adoption of platinum in jewelry making. With its timeless elegance and rich history, this antique diamond ring is more than just a piece of jewelry—it's a wearable work of art that is sure to leave a lasting impression for generations to come. Condition note: The shank has been repaired in the past, resulting in the removal of some of the original engraving.
