Tonight we feature three of our stunning old diamond beauties that any lady would say "I most certainly do" to. Our Exceptional Georgian Diamond Ring and Georgian Rose Cut Diamond Ring both feature foiled diamonds. Foiling was a method of enhancing gemstones. Setting the stones in closed settings with a sliver of foil underneath brightened the diamonds. The foils produced a magical depth that increased the refraction of light which drew the eye into the stone. Over time foils tended to fade, or slightly tarnish, but this only adds to their ephemeral beauty.
