This unusual and dainty solitaire Old Mine Cut Pink Diamond Ring is a perfect choice for a promise ring or an unusual engagement or right hand ring. The pink in the diamond is a lush, pink color, not muted, and a .20 point Old Mine Cut stone. This cut is what inspired the Brilliant Cut and was designed to sparkle by candle light, or fire. This was the main and only lighting choice for most people at the time this ring was made. The stone was hand cut, not a small feat for such a sweet sized diamond.
At the time this diamond ring was made, large diamonds were unusual to find mounted into a ring. This ring was set in platinum and 14 K yellow gold, and it has 4 little engraved flowers next to the diamond, two on each side. The illusion mount was designed to make the diamond appear larger than it is, and though the ring is a US size 5, it could easily be enlarged a few sizes if so desired, by your local jeweler. It has previously been sized.
The ring rises 4 mm above the knuckle, making it a comfortable and easy to wear ring. Hallmarked, the ring tests as 14K, and platinum at the stone mount to the shank. The whole mount measures 8 mm across, knuckle to knuckle.
The condition of this lovely piece of history is very good, with a bit of thinning at the back of the shank, and a very slight sizing mark, easily seen in the pictures, but almost invisible to the naked eye. This was caused by the ring being professionally sized at some point, many decades ago. Today, no jeweler would leave any sign of the ring having been altered in size. Today's jeweler has better tools and training at hand to ensure a seamless resize. It is not bent, but has a slight imperfection in the lines of the ring shank.I do not alter antique jewelry pieces in any way when I purchase them, unless the integrity of the structure is affected.
The thinning at the back of this ring is slight and will last for years without repair or replacing and does not compromise its beauty or integrity. In fact, the slight thinning makes the ring very comfortable to wear.
