  • Unique find! Only 1 available.

  • Shopping pre-owned is choosing sustainable luxury
  • One-of-a-kind item exclusively curated for you
  • Orders ship same business day with insurance and signature confirmation

 General Information:

  • US Size: Right between a 6.75 and 7.00, much closer to a 7.00 (please read the “notes” bullet point for more information)
  • Total Carat Weight: ~0.80 ctw
  • Total Precious Metal Weight: Approximately 3.53 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 18k patinaed yellow gold
  • Dimensions: face is 4.45 mm north to south; ~5.40 mm rise from the finger (depth) at the highest point on the face (table of the French cut diamond); shoulders taper from 4.30 mm to 2.45 mm at the base of the shank
  • Weight: An impressive 5.51 grams
  • Markings: A very faint “750” within a cut-corner horizontal lozenge cartouche is present on the interior of the shank, but has largely been polished away from years of loving wear; tests for 18k gold
  • Era: The center stone predates the other side stones and the mounting, possibly by up to 200 or more years, as its cut was one that was most popular during the 1700s. The side baguettes and the gold mounting likely date to the 1970s or later. However, without knowing an exact provenance, it is not possible to know its precise date range of the ring or any of its elements. All dating is inexact, and based on decades of dedicated research, scholarship and professional learning.
  • Buyer Notes: This ring is a more ‘recent’ vintage piece, boasting a central diamond that likely well predates the rest of the ring. Even so, it has been very well loved and affectionately worn in suit, and therefore shows wear commensurate with its age and use. The shank shows some nicks here and there, as pictured. There are two main nicks: one on the outer side of one of the baguette shoulders, and one on the interior of the shank. Yet, neither of them are readily noticeable to the eye, and in no way whatsoever take away from the beauty, integrity or value of this vintage piece. The ring is slightly out of round, and is more of an oval shape. This does not affect the wearability or comfort of the ring, and it feels just the same on the finger as any other perfectly round ring. The diamonds are all of very fine high quality, near colorless and of spectacular clarity. As such, the stones dazzle in bright white and rainbow refractions against their backdrop of patinaed deep yellow gold.

Specifications:

  • Center Stone Type: Diamond
  • Center Stone Count: One (1)
  • Center Stone Dimensions: Estimated 3.50 x 3.50 x 2.00 mm (measured within mount so as to preserve integrity)
  • Center Stone Carat Weight: By formula, 0.25 ct; this diamond is estimated to be hundreds of years old, so its unique tall crown gives it proportions that are specific to antique cuts of this type and give it a slightly heftier carat weight
  • Center Stone Shape: French Cut (yet, is very closely related to the elusive Peruzzi cut; bears characteristics to the Old Mine cut in faceting system, yet is more geometric)
  • Center Stone Color: H
  • Center Stone Clarity: VS2
  • Side Stone Type: Diamond
  • Side Stone Count: Ten (10)
  • Side Stone Dimensions: Approximately 3.00 x 1.25 mm (measured within mount so as to preserve integrity)
  • Side Stone Carat Weight: By formula, 0.55 ctw; 0.055 ct ea.
  • Side Stone Shape: Baguette Cut
  • Side Stone Color: G-H
  • Side Stone Clarity: VS1-VS2 

The Story:

Loaded with sultry vintage glam, this ring is a truly one of a kind find. This ring is sleek, chic and utterly mod, and features a spread of crisp diamonds set in rich gold. It centers a rare and extraordinarily soulful French cut diamond that appears to be of a much greater age than the rest of the stones or the mounting, which leads us to believe that it may have been a family heirloom, passed down from one generation to the next until it found its final home in this ring. 

The stone’s faceting matrix renders its notably high crown, giving it some flirtatious height above the squared bezel mount in which it sits. French cuts date all the way back to the 15th century, becoming most popular in the 1700s, and are a close relative of the Peruzzi cut diamond, which is arguably even rarer and is something of a crossover between a French cut and the Old Mine cut. What makes French cuts special are their square, cushiony silhouette, paired with their internal faceting that shoots forth in striking geometric fashion. The effect is a dichotomy of strong linearity and an almost bulbous feel-- a combination that makes these stones desirable to collectors and enthusiasts alike!

Flanking the featured stone are five channel set baguette diamonds on both sides, emphasizing the bold and architectural aesthetic of the French cut and mounting style. These ten total baguettes are sizable for side stones, acting as spanning wings to the center stone, and adding unbelievable sparkle from every angle. In tandem, these diamonds sweep across the face of the ring and give wonderful diamond coverage atop nearly the entire width of the finger. Even the ring’s north and south profiles were thoughtfully designed to complement the minimalist-modern sensibility of the design, and show two pierced arches that run contiguous to the curve of the band.

Because of this ring’s smart make, it stacks very nicely with other bands and diamond rings, as its width is relatively consistent and its height is modest in profile. Yet, this piece certainly holds its own and is ideal for solo wear, an irresistibly contemporary take on the classic engagement ring composition imbued with just as much timeless meaning and passion.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer.
