Men's 3 Carat Diamond Ring from Victorian Era Is Fusion of Fire And Class

About

This Victorian-era diamond ring was created for a man. It's sleek and clean in design, with no engraving or frillery. This is the kind of ring a man likes because it doesn't catch on anything; not the pocket of his jeans when he slides his hands in, not his sweater when he pulls it on. All three magnificent diamonds are respectably clean and faintly warm in color -not brown, not dingy; very slightly yellowish; in the J/K/L range. The center stone is a hefty 1.50 carat European-cut and it is flanked on either side by two European-cut diamonds of approximately .78 carats each, for a total of just over three carats. These old European-cut diamonds have incredible fire and deep flash, like old-mine diamonds. But they're rounder, not as squarish. They still have great height and an open culet on the bottom and they have immeasurably more character than modern cut diamonds. This ring is otherworldly-beautiful by the light of the fire or a candle or even an incandescent bulb. And the stones are so perfectly, expertly set in this finely, skillfully crafted ring. I suspect guys secretly want a diamond wedding band but they don't want to be *that* guy with the cheesy diamond wedding band. This is the ring that spares you that mortification. Because the Victorians, they knew how to build a manly diamond ring. Strong, simple lines, chunky, fire-filled rocks, good American gold. There's a difference between "flashy" and "impressive" and this ring *defines* that difference. It's impressive all the way. I love engraved shoulders on a ring, lots of hand-carved details. But not every guy wants such a "fancy" ring but still wants a ring that gut-punches you (in a good way) with the *wow* factor. That's why this ring was created: for that guy. Three carats of diamonds in a sleek, timeless man's ring in beautiful condition. It's class, personified. Just shy of a size 9, it would be a cinch for your local jeweler to resize. This ring would make a great wedding band for a modern young man. Of course, a woman could steal it and make it her own, absolutely.
