Edwardian Diamond Daisy Ring
The Edwardian period was inspired by nature and flowers to such an extent that the French referred to it as "La Belle Époque" - The Beautiful Period. This jewellery is renown for elegant and romantic designs.
The delicate coronet cluster design of this ring speaks to this period in time.
The old cut diamonds in Belle Epoque ring have been set to form a six-petalled flower. The daisy design was one of the most popular engagement ring styles in the Edwardian era.
The ring centres the largest of its nine old cut diamonds within an open back, raised white gold setting. Eight further diamonds are set to surround the main diamond to create a beautiful daisy floral design. The cuts on the diamonds provide a beautiful and bright white sparkle. The daisy coronet has been set onto sleek white gold, illusion engraved shoulders. The shoulders stretch about half way down the shank onto a warm yellow gold band.
Despite the ring having a slight raised gallery, it sits flush against the finger so there is no risk it getting caught on clothing etc.
The ring is in excellent antique condition and has been inspected by a professional goldsmith from the famous Hatton Garden jewellery quarter in London, England. Given the ring is over 100 years old, there is some microscopic wear to the metals which is only visible through a loop.
