Antique Rose Cut Diamond Solitaire Ring Unisex

$5,285

About

This is an unusually sleek and everyday wearable Victorian-era diamond ring. The low profile -rising just 5.24mm from the surface of the finger- means that you can do such modern things as: place your hands in the front pocket of your jeans, put on a sweater, and basically anything else you could ever want to do without worrying that your fancy Victorian diamond ring will get in the way because it won't. Full disclosure here: I do not acquire a lot of diamond rings. Diamonds really aren't my thing because they aren't all that rare and the modern ones are so calibrated, it's just ridiculous. And when I was a copywriter 200 years ago, I worked at the ad agency that created The 4 C's. Oh, wait. You thought the GIA thought that up all by themselves in the name of science? No. It was created in the name of marketing. But some diamonds are worth owning and this is one of them. It's an old rose-cut that weighs .98 carats which I think we can call one carat. These old rose-cuts are filled with inclusions and funky swirls that gem nerds love. But this one is filled instead with clarity and fire. One cannot evaluate old diamonds according to a modern scale, but with respect to clarity, I'm seeing an eye-clean stone that is near-colorless (F/G). But it's the fire of this diamond that captured my eye and refused to let it go. This humble old rose-cut diamond has more brilliance than it ought to have. It's a great deal more impressive than many diamonds twice its size, frankly. The buttery old 18K yellow gold is not marked, which is also not unusual. The ring is currently a size 8 and could be easily resized by your local jeweler.
