Four of a kind!

Featured above are four beautiful vintage rings currently in the website shop.
Each one would be classed as a cluster but they all have a different appeal and their own unique look!

The first on the left is an Art Deco design oval sapphire and diamond ring.  The cabochon sapphire is surrounded by lots of small diamonds set closely together called ‘pavé setting'
It is easy to wear as it doesn’t have claws to catch on clothes and as sapphires are next in hardness to diamonds the combination is a good choice for daily wear.  You can see more detail here : Vintage Sapphire and diamond cluster ring.

Next in line is a beautiful traditional design diamond cluster ring.  Sometimes called daisy rings or halo rings.  This one has a lovely millegrain setting with one carat of brilliant cut diamonds all collet set.  Millegrain is a form of engraving which is executed by hand, each little line or detail is painstakingly applied by an engraver and it really adds to the  beauty of a piece of jewellery.  Again this ring has no claws to catch on clothes so it’s great to wear! May need your sunglasses though! Check it out here : Vintage diamond cluster ring

The third ring is a ruby and diamond cluster and is another easy to wear ring with a no claw collet setting.  Rubies, like sapphires are next in line to diamond for hardness and the collet setting is very secure.  The spacing of the brilliant cut diamonds is more flower petal like and each stone is bordered by diamond cut hand engraving which gives a pretty effect.  This sweet ring would be a unique dress ring and perfect as anniversary gift.  All the detail is here : Vintage diamond and ruby cluster ring

Last but not least is the Antique Edwardian diamond cluster ring.  This sweet ring has a lighter more dainty look on the hand, but with no less appeal as it is more truly like a daisy or flower.
Like the others it has a practical collet setting but this time with old cut diamonds which have a more unique character than the perfect brilliant cut.   A very sweet ring that would be a delightful engagement ring or a special birthday gift.  To read more click here : Antique diamond daisy ring

Who doesn’t love millegrain!

Coming to the Vintage Jewel Box website over the weekend is this beautiful diamond cluster ring. I’m a sucker for cluster rings but even more so when they have millegrain settings like this beauty.
It is packed with 1.00 carat of sparking white diamonds and spreads 1.3cms across the setting so it certainly grabs your attention!
Why not add it to your wishlist 😉
