Bell & Bird Old Mine Cut Diamond Ring with Black Enamel

Inspired by Victorian Era black jewelry, we designed this unique ring with enamel details. The prongs are hand-filed to precise points and the traditional vitreous enamel is meticulously applied to the sides and shoulders of the ring. This ring features an old mine cut diamond of 1.52 carats, I color.  Handcrafted in our 18k old gold. 

Old mine cut diamonds were cut for gas and candle light and omit a darker romantic sparkle. While the precision faceting of modern stone’s main objective is to refract as much white light as possible.  A 19th century diamond was cut to preserve as much weight as possible and often follow the same shape as the rough diamond crystal as it was pulled from the ground.

Size 6, please email for resizing inquiries.

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.
