condition: excellent

First let me say I am not a diamond expert. I will tell you what a jeweler told me about 25 years ago and I have worn this ring for fun ever since. I did not have the diamond taken out to measure or weigh but he said it was between 1 1/2 - 2 ct, old European cut, good quality. Another jeweler recently told me this stone was just shy of 1 carat, so I have received mixed info. Either way it is gorgeous and big and nice and deep. When measuring across the top of the diamond itself, the diameter is approximately 7 mm from edge to edge of the octagon shape setting. Inside the band are the letters WG 18k. It is white gold and the diamond is gorgeous, shoots out rainbow beams of light under the sun or halogen lighting. On the inside band is also engraved "LOVEBIRDS". A rare beauty! Perfect addition to the Boudoir vanity! c. 1910's. This ring is a size 8 now and probably could be resized a little one way or the other. (PLEASE NOTE - the other antique diamond rings in the last 2 photos are also for sale , please inquire if interested. They are from c. 1850 and c. 1910. The one in the last photo is $1500 and the one with the big rose cut center diamond in the next to the last photo is $4500)
