SOLD: Victorian five-stone diamond gypsy ring, circa 1890

Ask a question

Here’s a late Victorian gypsy set gold ring with five lively and chunky old mine cut diamonds.

The 18-carat gold handcrafted mount holds more than half a carat of clean white stones, each in a cut-out lozenge, giving a pleasing geometry to the otherwise unembellished band – English late 19th century taste perfectly matching ours in the early 21st.

The diamonds graduate in size, complementing the plump, half-round shape that tapers slightly towards the back.

This ring will make a statement on its own or be fun to stack.
