Ask a question

I’m a huge fan of antique carved half hoop rings. They’re ornate and rich but not fussy.

A solid gold mount has its sides literally carved into with a graver by a craftsman who could have spent his whole career doing this one specialised type of work.

It became a hugely popular style in England at the end of the 19th century and remained so well into the 20th. Rings were crafted with countless combinations of gemstones.

This lovely example would make a perfect stacking ring. It’s fully hallmarked for London 1919 and comes with an insurance valuation from GSL, Sydney’s most respected gem lab.

It’s also extremely well priced. I’m selling at about half the normal retail value.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold, with hallmarks for London 1919
• Five graduated old round cut diamonds estimated to total 0.30 carats, graded set as H-I/VS & SI
• Comes with an independent insurance valuation for $3,250
• Size approximately 7 1/4 or O, but easily resized free of charge
• Ring face is 15mm (0.59 inches) from diamond to diamond, by 3.9mm (0.15 inches)
• Weight is 2.6 grams

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