A late Victorian emerald and diamond carved half hoop ring, the three graduating emerald-cut emeralds, estimated to weigh a total of 0.6 carats, and two old brilliant-cut diamonds, estimated to weigh a total of 0.6 carats, with rose-cut diamonds set inbetween, all claw set to a carved gold mount, circa 1890, the head measuring approximately 0.5×1.8cm, finger size N 1/2, gross weight 4.2 grams. This ring is in very good condition. The two side emeralds bearing signs of abrassion consistent with the age of the ring. Unmarked, tested as 18ct gold.
A very pretty emerald and diamond ring. This ring was made in the late nineteenth century and is an excellent example of the half-hoop style that was popular at the time. The three emeralds set in this ring are a bright crème de menthe hue and are perfectly complemented by the two scintillating old-cut diamonds. Further twinkling rose-cut diamonds are set between all the stones, adding further sparkle. The stones are set to a carved gold scroll mount, which adds warmth and detail to this lovely piece.
