This standout ring with Victorian old cushion cut diamonds is a striking example of unique antique design. Each of the eight cluster diamonds (2.7mm ~ 3.1mm) carat each are set upon a curling twist mount with blue and purple discolouring bringing focus to the central diamond (4.45mm) in a twelve point mount.

The openwork design of the gallery and mounts means each of the ring's diamonds have a wide surrounding area of lighting, giving them a fabulous appearance. The 18 carat tested band has trifurcated shoulders to graduate the split style from the band.

A one-of-a-kind find and a stunning example of craftsmanship this ring has been well cared for and is in excellent condition.

Size M

If the ring is perfect except for the fit, we'll resize it for you free of charge for any ring with a purchase price of £250 or more. 

Rings are often resized as a person's fingers change size throughout their lives, and rings need to change with them.

Most rings can be comfortably resized around two sizes in either direction. Some more antique items or rings that have been resized once before might be harder to resize. If you have any questions about a specific ring and how well it may resize please drop us a line. There's a question form on every rings page and they come straight to our inbox. If a ring you buy doesn't fit, and we can't safely resize it, you can return it as per our standard returns policy.

If the ring doesn't fit, just contact us within 14 days of purchase to arrange a resize. 

Depending on our workload and the complexity of the ring's structure a resize can take between 3 and 10 days.

The process:

  • You email us to say you need a resize and what size you need the ring moved to.
  • We email you a resize form to include with your ring.
  • You send the item for resizing (we ask you use Royal Mail Special Delivery for your peace of mind)
  • The jeweller will assess and resize the ring
  • The ring will be sent back to you within 3 to 10 working days.

Having a ring resized is a personalisation, indicating you are satisfied with your purchase and you cannot then return the ring under our usual terms. This does not affect your statutory rights.

COVID-19

A lot of businesses are entirely closed at the moment, this includes our usual resizing partners. We still offer free resizing but the service may at times take longer than usual.

The easiest way to make sure a ring is going to fit someone is to ask their ring size, perhaps they already know or have a ring that fits already that can be used as a guide.

If you're looking to keep your ring a surprise you can take a ring you know fits to any High Street jeweller and they'll easily tell you the size for free. Another method is to cut a piece of paper into a strip, fold it around either the finger of choice or inside a ring you know will fit and mark where it wraps. You can then compare that circumference with the size chart here:​

What will be delivered?

Your jewellery will arrive inside a large ring box, inside a storage/presentation box. That box will be included alongside an envelope containing a letter about your specific jewellery and its history for the recipient. These are delivered in an unbranded box, as we know many people want their proposals to be a surprise.

How quickly will I receive it?

We aim to dispatch within one working day, and we use next day tracked services for our shipping. We also perform some additional fraud checks on our orders because of the high value of our antiques. As an example, most people who place an order on a Monday morning will get their items Tuesday or Wednesday, but please factor in that fraud checks and shipping during times of national uncertainty mean this cannot be guaranteed. We always provide dispatch notifications and tracking information to you as soon as we have it.

What if it doesn't fit?

If the ring is perfect except for the fit, we'll resize it for you free of charge for any ring with a purchase price of £250 or more. 

You can read more about it under Resizing.

How do you determine diamond carat?

With antique jewellery you wouldn't want to remove and re-set the diamonds just to weigh them. Diamond carat estimates are done based on visual assessment of the size, shape and cut. Our presentations of diamond carat are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.

How do you determine gold carat?

Many pieces of jewellery are hallmarked to say the carat of the gold. Where this is present we present that. Where it is not we use chemical testing to determine the carat of the gold on the surface of the shank. Our presentations of gold carat are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.

How do you determine age?

We use three methods together to determine age. When the assay office has used hallmarking letters to specify the year of manufacture we use those as our guide, when clear and unambiguous these give an exact year we present. If there are no hallmarks or the hallmarks are hard to discern on older antiques we factor in the style of the ring and the cut of the diamonds. The way diamonds have been cut over the centuries give a good guide to how best to date a ring, and jewellery, like clothing, has a fashion coherent with its era. Sometimes we also obtain jewellery in sets, where the dating of the other pieces from that set can act as a suggestion of age for the ring.Our presentations of year or era are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.
