This is the kind of antique engagement ring consistently sought after– a big, dreamy diamond in a beautifully detailed, yet classic solitaire mounting! The stunning stone is unusual for an old mine cut, as most are smaller in size, and tend to have more pigmentation. This 1.80 carat diamond is an F-G color grade, putting it in the colorless to near colorless range! It is an SI2 clarity grade, with visible inclusions under magnification that go unnoticed to the naked eye. It truly is a brilliant beauty, set into a gorgeous c1900 handmade, 14k, hexagonal crown basket. The shank is etched with romantic scroll details on each side. It is a fairly tall setting– regal in many ways– sitting about 3/8 inch from the finger to the diamond's table top. The ring is currently a size 8 and may be easily resized upon request.
