Victorian 1.00 Carat Old Cut Diamond Target Cluster Ring, circa 1900
A fabulous pretty and characterful ring. The centre stone – and Old European cut – is a known 0.55 carat and displays a very high white colour. Eight surrounding stones – cushion shaped old mine cuts – are an ever so slightly lower colour, emphasising the whiteness of the main stone. Two rose cut diamonds rest at the tops of the shank, adding further detail and sparkle to this already dazzling piece.
