This beautiful antique set comes to me from an consignor. An elderly gentleman, this belonged to a great aunt, and he has been going through many pieces he has inherited over the years in an effort to downsize. He didn't have a lot of history on this, but he knows that his aunt was of Irish extraction and immigrated to the US in the 1890s, settling in New Hampshire.He believes that this ring was given to her after the birth of her second child. I will add more pics of the engagement ring solo. This listing is ONLY for the diamond solitaire. This is a stunning engagement ring-- measuring about 5.25 in diameter, the round Old European cut stone has an estimated weight of about. Its a wonderfully lively stone, H in color, Si-1 in clarity, with a high, small table and open culet.
This is a very nicely faceted and impressive looking diamond. It is set in 18K gold, with a white gold four prong setting and a yellow gold band. The band measures 3mm wide.The ring has some wear to the girdle and a few fleabites near the prongs. These are only visible under magnification.
The engagement ring is a 6.25 and can be sized by your jeweler. It weighs 2.7 grams.
