Antique citrine and diamond cluster ring

£845.00

A wonderful antique late Georgian to early Victorian citrine and diamond cluster ring. This ring looks great on the finger and is typical of the era in its manufacture. The centre piece is a foil backed facetted gemstone which is confirmed as being Citrine through a refractive index reading taken with a refractometer. Crafted in 18ct yellow gold the old cut diamonds are mounted in a silver boarder. We know that this started out life as a ring thanks to the curved underneath of the head.
