Antique Russian Demantoid Ring

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A Russian marquise shaped ring: bezel-set with an oval 1.61 ct demantoid garnet of exceptional brilliance surrounded by old cut diamonds.
The demantoid is unusually clean (most stones of this size will be heavily included) and full of fire.
At the bottom, the stone has a tiny "horsetail" - a signature of Uralian demantoids.
Russian demantoids of this size, clarity, and sparkle are very rare.

The ring is marked with 56 zolotnik old Russian gold standard (14K). The shape of the hallmark indicates that the ring was made between 1882 and 1898.

Estimated combined diamond weight 0.75 ct (F-G color, SI1 clarity).

Ring size 8 1/2 (18,5 mm)

Height 18 mm (11/16 in.)
