Edwardian 19kt Gold, Platinum, and Diamond Swirl Ring
This is an exquisite 19kt yellow gold, platinum, and diamond ring from the Edwardian era, circa 1900.
The Edwardians, much like the Victorians, were highly influenced by Romanticism. Edwardian jewelry embraced fluid lines and traditional motifs, borrowing from eighteenth-century jewelry. Edwardian jewelers departed from Victorians with their use of platinum. The strength of platinum allowed them to create delicate, lace-like pieces that ultimate gave the jewelry a light, soft look.
The rings design creates a swirl of diamonds around one’s finger. All at once, this piece is eye-catching and delicate. Although this piece is unmarked, I have acid tested the ring’s top as platinum and the band as 19kt yellow gold. The back of the band indicates that the ring was at one point resized. This piece is currently a size 6 1/2, although it could be sized with the help of a knowledgeable jeweler.
At the center of the piece is a beautiful old mine cut diamond in an eight prong, illusion setting. This diamond is J in color and VS2 in clarity. The diamond is approximately 3.75 mm and has an approximate weight of 0.25 carats. Surrounding the main diamond are 16 lovely rose cut, bead set diamonds. The diamonds are slightly graduated and therefore range in size. The average approximate size for each diamond is 0.80 mm. This piece weighs 2.70 grams.
This would make a wonderful, cost-effective engagement ring! Alternatively, it is the perfect piece to add to your antique jewelry collection.
