Antique ring centering a 1.01 carat rose-cut diamond with GIA stating that it is H SI1. With Japanese hallmarks for 14k gold, and Mikimoto maker's mark. This ring likely was originally set with a Mikimoto pearl, and subsequently set with this sweet rose-cut. Japanese. Center: 7mm, shank: 1.8mm. Circa 1915.
Mikimoto has been around for over a hundred years and this combination of elements makes it very special!
Diamond and gold mining has caused devastation in areas such as Africa, wreaking havoc on delicate ecosystems and communities. Choosing to go vintage, you are eliminating the need for more mining and lessening the demand for new diamonds.
