Victorian Emerald and diamond five stone


A stunningly gorgeous Victorian emerald and diamond five stone ring. We love old cut diamonds owing to the unique nature of their facets. The centre diamond seen here is fabulously tall and exhibits wonderful colour, especially seen next to the glass bottle green colour of the emeralds. These five stone diamond rings are not un-common in design, as is clear from looking at any antique jewellery shop, it is the individuality of each ones gemstones which sets one apart form another.

Makers mark WHG but missing the rest of the hallmark thanks to being erased so the inside of the ring could be engraved. From EG (a date follows which we cannot read but ends in 44) Fotuna Sequatur which translates as ‘Let fortune Follow’.
Central old cut diamond approximately 0.84ct with a further two old cut diamonds each approximately 0.18ct. Diamond colour G/H. Central diamond clarity Vs with the outer diamonds falling into the Si bracket. Two natural emerald cut emeralds of excellent colour. The diamonds are possibly older than the ring as they are typical of the style of cut seen in late Georgian times. The emeralds are not Georgian but likely Victorian cut. Total diamond weight 1.2ct.
6.5mm wide with the gemstones stretching 18mm across the finger. The tall table of the centre diamond rises 4.4mm proud of the finger. 1.6mm wide at the back of the finger.

Excellent. The emeralds do exhibit the effects of 100+ years of loving use. We have re-tipped a few of the claws where required to ensure the security of the diamonds. The scroll work to the sides of the ring are in excellent condition for its age and go to show that it has been worn as a stand alone ring rather than worn along another ring.
