Georgian Inspired Diamond Ring

This ring was designed and hand-fabricated in our Texas workshop. Our inspiration is taken directly from 18th-century Georgian era rings we have encountered in the past. The primary stone is a naturally colored diamond of incredible clarity cut in an antique style. The 16 surrounding old mine cut diamonds are in varied shapes and sizes and sourced from period jewels. All the stones have been set in a 'cutaway' technique common in the 18th and 19th centuries but rarely seen today. Our workshop achieves a proper period look using similar practices to the 200+ year-old originals.

Georgian Inspired Old Mine Cut Diamond Ring

$34,500.00

 

Featuring a central 3 carat old mine cut style diamond. The cinnamon colored stone has a unique warmth with incredible clarity.  Surrounded by sixteen small old mine-cut diamonds in varied shapes, weighing approximately 1.50 carats in total diamond weight. We have applied a propitiatory acid treatment to darken the gold, giving the settings surrounding the stones a deep tone. This design is inspired by a labor-intensive 'cutaway' setting technique of many 18th and 19th century rings. 

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.
