This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE, UNISEX / MENS ENGAGEMENT RING that was made in the ART NOUVEAU STYLE during the LATE VICTORIAN PERIOD of c1880 - c1900. It is made from 18K YELLOW GOLD with a brushed finish (it is not shiny and reflective) and it is stamped 18K. The ring is set with 1 ROUNDISH, THICK OLD MINE CUT DIAMOND that is BROWN in COLOR, with I clarity that weighs approx. 1.10 CARATS. This diamond has 2 inclusions at the surface that look like a chip, but you need magnification to find them - nobody would see this when the ring is on the hand. The diamond measures approx. 5.9 - 6.0 mm in diameter by 4.86 mm deep and the diamond color is natural. It is BEZEL-SET in PLATINUM and the bezel has a small seam.
The ring is finely detailed with FLOWERS & LEAVES, which was a typical ART NOUVEAU THEME. The head of the ring measures 11.65 mm north-to-south and tapers down to 5 mm at the bottom of the shank. It sits 7.2 mm high off the finger. This style of ring is SUITABLE FOR MEN OR WOMEN, and I usually seem to find them in large sizes leading me to believe they were owned by men. This ring is one of the smaller ones, with a ring size in between 7.25 - 7.5, but it has a heavy and solid feeling weight of 15 grams. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A ONE OF A KIND ANTIQUE RING with a UNIQUE BROWN COLORED DIAMOND...THIS IS IT...CLASSIC ART NOUVEAU DESIGN!

*A NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOGRAPHY – Taking pictures of diamonds to be displayed on a computer screen can be difficult, often resulting in the diamonds looking dark (especially rose cut diamonds) when in reality they are not. If you are looking at any of our pictures and feel that the diamonds look dark, please refer to the description of the item that states the accurate color and clarity of the stones.
Also, jewelry and/or diamond grading is done under 10X magnification. When you super-size our photos you will see the item in 100X magnification. Please be aware that you may see things that cannot be seen with your eyes or a jeweler’s loupe. Sometimes these magnified images can make the item look distorted or appear to have problems when in reality it is fine. I list only high quality pieces and avoid those with problems or in need of repair unless it is described as such in the listing. If you are seeing something that you are not sure of, please inquire about it.
