Victorian 14kt Buttercup Diamond Engagement Ring, Sz. 7.25, .33 ctw, 1800's
Antique 14kt Diamond Buttercup Engagement Ring, Sz. 7.25. Weight is appx. 1.02 grams. The diamond is an older cut, short table - Old Mine/Old European Cut style. The cut, as occurred frequently in pre 1900's is not perfectly round. It is slightly off of round by 1mm-2mm. The stone is held by six prongs set in a scalloped buttercup setting. The diamond is appx. I in color. There are some inclusions but a very nice diamond for its age. It is appx. .33 ctw. The band is appx. 1.2mm all the way around the ring. The buttercup setting is appx 7.9mm by 7.3mm on the top of the finger. It is a Victorian ring from the 1800's with a nice sized diamond for the setting which is quite noticeable when worn. It is marked 14kt and tested. It is not signed by the maker. The ring is in very good condition as is the stone. I have lightly cleaned it but it could use a really good cleaning to make it even more sparkly. See photos. (W.10.519.11X - LD. 10.22.19)

Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification.

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.
