Antique engagement ring centered upon a ~.70 carat old European cut diamond set in 14K rose gold carved metalwork in classic Victorian motif. Circa 1880.
So beautifully detailed! The engraving is well-preserved and the patina in the grooves really makes the Victorian motif pop.
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.
