Antique 1910s .77 carat fancy yellow Old Mine Cut solitaire diamond ring

A fancy yellow Old Mine Cut diamond tucked in an early 20th century solitaire mounting. We found this mounting and diamond separately and decided to play matchmaker! The classic six-pronged mounting is marked for Dattlebaum & Friedman, NY, NY, a firm that specialized in rings beginning in 1904. The diamond likely pre-dates the mounting by a generation or so, judging by its plump proportions. The color, cut, and clarity (VS2) of this diamond combine to create a rich, warm visual experience. The hue of the diamond reminds me of dulce de leche or cardamom spice - truly mouthwatering! The high and vast table facet beckons you to peer down the pavilion and right through the bottom of this diamond: a tiny, honey-colored world to explore. A life-giving gemstone in a practical setting.

Measurements: Size 6 US US, 2.8 grams. This ring may be sized in the 4-8 US range for $75.
Diamond details: (1) .77 carat Old Mine Cut diamond, VS2/fancy yellow. (5.7 x 5.1/3.5mm)
