Fantastic and very unique antique ring from the Art Nouveau / Victorian era. One of a kind piece. Beautiful life like 3-dimensional floral design of a chrysanthemum flower in the center holding a 12 point diamond. It has textured leaves on each side and the flower petals are reticulated. The center diamond is an old cut. I bought this at a local estate jewelry shop who specializes in fine antique jewelry. The ring is unmarked but the jeweler tested it as 14k gold. She also tested the diamond, of course genuine and confirmed to be old cut when studied under magnification. The jeweler also provided the 12 points estimate. She measured it to about a size 5.5 to 5 3/4 as the center slopes in. It seems to me it would be difficult to re-size with the thicker band which is decorated on the sides and has a center linear detail around the band, but the ring appears to have been sized in the past. The chrysanthemum from top to bottom measures 11/16th of an inch, so just under 3/4 of an inch. The old cut diamond is about 3mm in diameter. It weighs 7 grams and is a sturdy shape. Very special piece from a very special era. I wish I could keep it as I will never find another like it, but it is not a need for me right now so I am hoping to find the buyer who will treasure it. I enjoy making my customers happy and matching unique pieces with new homes. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions! : ). It means a lot to me that you are visiting my store! : )
