SOLD: Victorian turquoise and diamond half hoop ring, circa 1890


Out of stock

Ask a question

This crisp turquoise and diamond carved half hoop was made around the end of the 19th century.

I had a similar ring in stock recently – similar but not the same. One of the joys of buying antique jewellery is that you rarely see two identical pieces, the freshness of new discoveries is a constant reward.

Here the turquoises are intense and matched, and the 18-carat gold hand-carved setting is unworn.

Four good old cut diamonds between the three main stones complete this lovely late Victorian ring.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold
• Three natural turquoise oval cabochons: the larger is 6.7 x 5.2 x 3.5mm, the two smaller are 4.9 x 4.0 x 2.1mm
• Four round old cut diamonds estimated to total 0.24 carats, graded set as H-I/VS & SI
• Comes with an independent insurance valuation for $4,250
• Size approximately 7 or N 1/2, but easily resized free of charge
• Face of ring is 7.4mm tall, 17.8mm wide from turquoise to turquoise
• Weight is 3.2 grams
• In excellent antique condition
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antique boxes are not for sale)
• Note: the antique opal ring is for sale separately – please get in touch if you’d like information about it

Please examine the photographs carefully – they form part of the description.

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
