Victorian Light Fancy Cognac Old Cut Diamond Cluster Ring, circa 1890
Utterly arresting and unique. The central cushion shaped old cut diamond is full of life and fire – and displays glorious light cognac hue. The colour of the stone is deliberately emphasised by the twelve high white old cut diamonds set in the surround. All the stones are claw set in a delicate pierced gallery, leading to a fine and tapering yellow gold shank. Enchanting.
