Victorian Carved half hoop 5 stone Diamond ring in 18ct gold.

Carat: Approximately 2cts in total with the centre being of approximately 1ct.

Condition: Very Good. There are signs of wear and previous restorations to the settings. The Diamonds seem to be tight in their settings.

This is not a piece that I will just send without knowing who it is going to, so please send a message before purchasing so we can talk first. For international customers, unfortunately I can't send this to you with the correct level of insurance, there should be a solution to this soon, so please feelfreeto message me.
It is possible to size this, but please ask first, so we can make sure it's possible and what cost/timescale may be involved.
The Diamond gradings in this listing are my own opinion and not backed up by a Diamond Grading report. These gradings are based on many years’ experience dealing in Diamonds and Gemstones along side the training I have received and qualifications I hold (such as GIA’s Diamond Diploma). These opinions are offered as honestly as possible. Unless otherwise stated, the gradings are assessed whilst the stones are mounted. This can cause restrictions in what is possible to see.
All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
