Three Stone Diamond Ring

$160.00 (HOLD)


Set in sterling silver, these diamonds are in the Georgian style: Rose cut. Imogene Jewellery tells me that the diamonds and perhaps their rubbed in settings may have been re-used on this modern shank. Dark, sparkling and mysterious the faceted diamonds are "salt and pepper" meaning they have many inclusions. With the advent of large perfect stones of synthetic moissanite* and man made diamonds, the obvious underground source of "Salt and Pepper:" diamonds has made them more fashionable recently. This puts me in mind of the wealthy matrons of Imperial Rome who adopted silver jewellery when the slaves started to gold.

*Synthetic Moissanite will test as diamond with one of those pencil sized diamond testers, by the way.Size L and a half.
