Sold on Layaway | 18K Italian Victorian Diamond Star & Blue Guilloche Enamel Ring
A superb Italian Victorian c.1860-1880 diamond star and blue guilloche enamel ring, modelled in 18k gold.
The ring features a stunning star, set with sparkly old mine cut diamonds approx. 0.75ctw by spread on a royal blue guilloche enamel background. The enamel is all original and in amazing pristine condition. It was sourced from Italy, and is Italian in origin.
The frame has intricate repousse detailing on the front border which is all done by hand! An exceptional testament to true Italian craftsmanship. No detail is spared on the side profile either, with wonderful petal shoulders on each side of the ring.
The reverse of the ring is further detailed with an open-work scrolled pierced gallery with gorgeous swirl motifs. The back has a glass panel which encases a braided blonde hairwork inside. The glass panel is welded shut and cannot be opened. This is intentionally made this way as it is meant as a sentimental ring.
It is an all original antique ring and not a conversion ring, with all original components and no modifications, and certainly one of the best examples of a diamond star enamel ring we have ever encountered!
It is a US 6 and sizable.
The ring face measures 16.7mm x 19.7mm height and weighs 8.52 grams.
This listing includes a Ring Resize to a US 8, as well as to remove the hair and glass panel on reverse.
