Victorian diamond five stone ring, circa 1870. Set with
five cushion shaped old mine cut diamonds in an intricately carved yellow gold
setting. This style of ring is called a carved half hoop. But what makes this
ring unique is the diamond cut; they are unusually pointed. The diamonds are graduated
slightly, which means the diamonds progressively change in size, this is a long-established
technique but never fails to be affective. The condition of the ring is exceptional
for an original Victorian ring and would make a perfect engagement ring.
