A stunning oval cut natural emerald surrounded by a dozen circular-brilliant cut diamonds. This 9ct gold ring has a yellow gold band with white gold gallery – a 36 prong basket. The claws holding the emerald are yellow gold. The emerald measures 8.55mm x 6.1mm x 3.3mm. This is a weight of 0.96ct. This emerald is untreated & has white inclusions. It is AA- grade – this is where approximately 60% of the gemstone has cloudy inclusions but there are no dark spots / carbon inclusions. This emerald is light to medium-light in colour. It is a fascinating gemstone with its own unique character. The inclusions give it depth & a story. The diamonds are 2.3mm in diameter & 1.2mm deep. They are circular-brilliant cut, just before the modern brilliant round cut was fully used as industry standard. They are very clean & have some fire, but not the finest quality. They are colourless & free from inclusions. There is a combined diamond weight of 0.5ct. This ring is hallmarked, but they are worn in places. There is a Crown Traditional Mark, 375 for 9ct gold, unreadable assay office mark & a disfigured date letter. There is an unknown makers mark of G.Ltd This ring is antique. There is wear to the emerald – they are quite soft – under a 10x loupe you see some scratches & scuffs. The table (top) of the emerald has worn to be uneven. A couple of the gold claws holding the Emerald are bent – see photos. Nonetheless, this ring is still stunning. The points above are to note – it is still a completely unique antique emerald surrounded by very bright gemstones! Despite not having a legible date letter, this ring is expected to date from the 1920-30s. This is based on the style of the ring, the wear, the cut of the diamonds & the untreated nature of the emerald.
Size L (UK & Au) / Size 5.75 (Us) / Size 51 (Eu) This emerald ring weighs 2.1g The band width is 1.7mm The gallery measures 13.8mm long x 10.7mm wide
