Antique Victorian 18k Gold Turquoise and Old Mine Cut Diamond Ring
This truly sweet Victorian 18k gold ring is a nest for four oval turquoise cabochons that huddle together in a perfectly imperfect arrangement around a clunky old mine cut diamond. A semi-collet setting holds them firmly in formation, raised slightly over the substantial squared shoulders. The vibrant springy hues of the stones contrast magnificently with the characteristic rosey Victorian gold, and the piece is overall an exemplary look at the tastes of the era.
