Antique 18kt Filigree Diamond Engagement Ring, Art Deco, Old Mine Cut, Sz. 7, early 1900's
Vintage 18kt Old Mine Diamond Engagement Ring, size 7, 2.75 grams, age is very early 1900's. The stone appears to be hand-cut and not machine cut - it is irregular in the design, the culet has the tip cut flat. The ring has a raised setting that comes up at the top sides of the shoulder and raised up to appx. 4.7mm to the top of the diamond. It has a cut-out filigree blossom and leaf pattern in the center under the stone. The stone is appx. 2.7mm and round set in a square setting. The top center of the ring measures 7.5mm which tapers down to 1mm at the back of the finger. Age is 1920's or earlier. Under the leaves at the center of the setting, it appears that on one side band has band part broken on one side - the piece is still there and a jewelry can add gold to restore that but it also isn't noted when worn but it is something that exists which happens on these types of rings that are over 100 years old or very close to it. Otherwise, it is in good condition with typical wear. The ring is solid and not flimsy. The diamond, as mentioned above is an old cut, it is not perfect compared to today's brilliant cuts but it is the history of this ring and dates the ring to be a true vintage piece with a history. It is signed 18kt but not signed by themaker. It is also tested. This came from a PA auction/estate sale. See photos. Lot Loc. W.11.1018.G33X3 D 11/17/18.

We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
If the item is over $50.00 for international mailing will need be sent with insurance at the buyer’s cost. That may require separate invoicing.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
