Simply one of the most beautiful Edwardian designs I have come across in a ring. Created in c1910, this beauty is crafted in rose gold and with what is most likely platinum mounts for the old cut diamonds. The magic of the rose gold against the dreamy white of these real pearls is astonishing.
I have only seen one or two of these antique double rings before and they are PERFECT if you desire a stacking effect- what you get is a romantic two separate bands and rings fused together at the back of the bands, symbolising two becoming 1. A superb example of a Toi et Moi romantic ring.
In the centre of each band is a claw-set pearl (complete, not only a half as you sometimes find), which is flanked either side by a small old-cut diamond mounted in platinum. Then the two rings are offset slightly so you get that beautifully staggered effect. I adore this! High carat rose gold, is a little more unusual too. I am assuming 18ct, and it was tested by a jeweller as being high carat (minimum of 14ct). The old mine cut diamonds have a particular personality and do not shimmer and glisten as much as more modern cuts so expect a quietly, elegant ring rather than an in-your-face shiny new thing. Personally, I think this is one of the most amazing designs I have come across- it screams the lightness and simple beauty of the Edwardian era.
The stones are all in excellent condition. Natural pearls that have been really well-matched in colour. No markings but all stones and gold have been tested. You can see the jewellers’ attention to detail on the reverse where the settings nestle together. Loving care evident. UK M.5 /US 6.5 approx. I shall send by tracked and signed delivery. Please note the boxes in the images are for display only but I will send another box in order to keep her safe.
