Edwardian 2.35 Carat Old Cut Diamond & Tourmaline Cluster Ring, French, circa 1910
This is just the most spectacular French Edwardian cluster ring. Centred by an incredibly bright and lively cushion shaped old mine cut diamond, the whiteness of which is highlighted by a pair of strong, electric green chrome tourmalines. A border of twenty old cut diamonds surround the central trio of stones in a platinum, coronet setting. A further six (three each side) diamonds are set in the shoulders, leading to a fluted, rose gold shank. Exquisite.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report from IGR (#30306741).
