This antique beauty is distinctly American in its style-- the claw like setting known as the 'belcher', popular between 1850 and 1890. It was created by designer Thomas Belcher and defined by prongs cut right out of the shank, which would otherwise be a gypsy setting! It allows for the low profile of the gypsy setting while letting more light in and out of the diamond, giving it additional brilliance and a more unique style. This one is more delicate and feminine than we often see, in 14k rosy gold. It showcases a .32 carat transitional cut diamond from the 1920s. The diamond is spectacular, a near colorless G grade and an exceptionally brilliant VS1 clarity grade. It is currently a size 5 1/2 and may be resized easily, up or down, upon request.
