Bell and Bird Handmade Travel Mount Ring with Elongated Old Mine Cut Diamond
Our 'Travel Mount' is a simple setting we created when we needed to quickly mount an important antique stone to be exported for an exhibition in London. It has become one of our signature designs. It appeals to a client who desires a minimal setting that is all about the center stone. The 8 prongs are hand filed to delicate points with the center stone set on a simple rounded band. This example features a 1.9 carat elongated old mine cut diamond.
Handmade in our Texas workshop, this ring is in our custom blend of 18K rose gold. A more subdued, darker tone than commercially available rose gold. We call this color "old gold" and created the alloy in the spirit of the many 19th century rings we have handled.
