Bell & Bird Old Mine Cut Diamond Cluster Ring
Handmade diamond cluster ring, in our 18k "old gold". Featuring a central antique approximate 3 carat old mine cut style diamond. The diamond 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 a deep tone to the settings surrounding the stones. This design is inspired by a labor-intensive 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.
The diamond cluster ring is inspired by the many Georgian and early Victorian cluster rings we have handled over the years.
