18K & 22K Diamond Star Ring Inscribed " FMH to CP Dec 25. 1919"
An important star ring, from the Victorian c.1880-1890 era, originally from an antique stick pin, set in 18k buttery yellow gold that we have married together with a Christmas dated marriage band.
This is certainly not an ordinary diamond star, as the center old mine cut diamond has an incredible high crown, and surrounding rose cut diamonds that have excellent depth & sparkle. We have specifically chosen a very special antique wedding band that is befitting to be the perfect match with this high quality diamond star.
The band is in 22k gold, hallmarked 22kt (22k gold), in the same buttery yellow gold as the pin. It is also marked with the maker's mark which is B & W. Co. What is most interesting about this star ring is that the inner of the wedding band is inscribed "FMH to CP Dec 25. 1919". This was most likely an engagement ring, or promise ring, with a very special Christmas date in 1919. We thought that it would be the perfect ring to be used with the diamond star.
It is a US 6.5, and because of the inner engravings, we do not recommend a resizing down to preserve the integrity of the inscriptions. We can size it up by 1 to 1.5 sizes.
The diamonds weigh approx. 0.70ctw by spread, and the star measures 11mm x 12mm height. The ring weighs 3.85 grams.
Note: The star is naturally slightly curved downward on its tips, this makes it the perfect candidate to be a ring as it is not flat. Additionally, we soldered it high enough so that the tips do not touch your finger at all, and can be worn safely without irritation.
