A late Victorian period 12k yellow gold genuine turquoise and diamonds ring circa 1890 1900. This antique size 2-3/4 or 2.75 ring measures 3/4" x 1/4" across the top. It is mostly unmarked but has been tested. It may have been sized down in the past, which means sometimes original stamps are lost. The turquoise cabochons gem stones are genuine Persian turquoise. It has a stylized X mark, and the five genuine diamonds range from 2.5 to 6-7 points in the centre (approximate weight 17-18 points) in setting measured by gauge.
It is probable these 1910-20s cut diamonds are a later replacement for the original pearls, which frequently were worn or damaged in pieces this age. This ring weighs 1.8 grams, and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than the diamond replacements.
