Circa the cusp of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, this 14k gold Gypsy ring contains a beautiful Old Mine Cut diamond flush mount seamlessly into the ring. The ring has a slight flare to it, making it a wider, curvier version of a gypsy ring. The diamond is set in a circle of platinum that emphasizes the contrast between the white of the platinum metal and the gold, adding elegance to the design. The Old Mine cut has a squarish, oblong shape with high tables and an open culet in back. The beautiful diamond has a lot of sparkle that pops against the 14k gold. Circa 1900, this is an early use of platinum, which came into fashion for the first time in the Edwardian era.
The diamond is 5.6 x 5 mm, approximately .7 of a carat. It is K in color and SI1 in clarity.
The ring weighs 8.3 grams. It is a ring size 5.5 and could be resized.
The ring is pictured here with a contemporary version based on the original design, created as part of Kirsten’s Corner Signature Collection. The contemporary ring is also available for purchase in our shop.
