18K Gold Victorian Era Diamond Flower Ring
This is a gorgeous 18 karat yellow gold and diamond ring, dating to the late Victorian era, circa 1900. In the Victorian language of symbolism the daisy flower was a symbol for friendship and love. The ring features a circle with a cross like design, and a flower or clover-form at center. All around the outer circle are gold beads in a pattern. The circle measures approximately 5/8 inches in diameter. At the center of this flower form, created by a negative shape of petals, is a 5mm round brilliant cut diamond set into four prongs and raised. The gemstone is so vibrant; it is G in color and VS-2. It is a round brilliant cut diamond that is truly eye-catching, weighing approximately 1/2 a carat. The ring is not marked but it tests to 18 karat of gold. It weighs 8.3 grams and has some nice weight to it. The yellow color of this ring is really superb. Its design and composition is balanced and beautifully restrained.
The ring makes a beautiful romantic gift for someone special. It is a ring size of 7-1/2 but can be easily resized. It is a fine example of Victorian era jewelry, made with sensitivity and excellent craftsmanship.
