English Five Diamond Ring c.1915-1916
This buttery yellow gold ring of english origin contains five antique diamonds that are graduating in size. The largest diamond is set in the center of the ring.
The handmade band is 18 karat yellow gold and has beautiful carved prongs acting as the backdrop for the antique diamonds.
There are carved fleur-de-lys motifs on either side of the ring's shoulders that add a nice finishing touch too. The carvings on this ring are in perfect condition.
This multi-diamond ring was quite a popular design during this time as it was considered romantic. They were usually given as an anniversary present.
One could wear this as a wedding band, a promise ring, stack it, or treat yourself to a fantastic right hand ring.
There are endless options!
The ring band has the birmingham assay mark stamped into it with a date of 1915-1916.
Inside the band is a number that seems to have been written in by hand - our best guess is it reads 5240.
Could this be an anniversary or wedding date added after the ring was passed down?
Maybe an inventory number? or... maybe it's the secret combination to a wealthy heiress' hidden safe - There would be no better place as it's with you at all times... too bad we may never know!
