French VICTORIAN Antique Pearl Rose Cut DIAMOND Black ENAMEL 18k Gold Ring Old
Some examples seen in the last photo, so please see my other offerings and thanks for stopping by! Beautiful scalloped navette ring with the most lovely details - I love the raised center bezel which is outlined in black enamel and holding a rose cut diamond. Shank is ribbed all the way around with scrolled shoulders. The piece is in 18k rose gold that is rosy on the raised areas and buttery gold in the relief areas. Antique Box in photos is not included. French eagle hallmark for 18k gold. Currently measures a 7 1/2.
The face of the ring is 13.5mm by 8.5mm. The diamond is about 2mm, adds a lovely glint of sparkle. All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition.
This one seems in better than most with just a few nicks to the enamel seen only under magnification. A bit of build up but I do not like to over clean my pieces, I don't see any thick adhesive residue, it appears very tidy. The pearls have a nice sheen with no chips or cracks. The band is in beautiful shape considering age of over 110 years with no bends or misshapen areas.
It does have some faint surface wear but a wonderful patina. It is still nicely shaped and all the pearls feel secure. Very sweet piece from a very special era. I enjoy making my customers happy and matching unique pieces with new homes. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
