Antique Victorian 1890s .47 carat Old Mine Cut diamond engagement ring

A 14K Victorian diamond engagement ring set with a plump Old Mine Cut diamond, just shy of 1/2 carat. The belcher set mounting features deep, dense chasing up the shoulders. The prongs are continuations of the shoulders themselves, reaching to grip the cushion-shaped diamond in a low profile. From above, the negative space between the prongs gives the head of the ring a petaled-look. This diamond is a crush-able example of the old mine cut style, with a lumpy, pillow-shaped perimeter, tiny table, large culet, and - as a bonus! - the kozibe effect: the reflection of the culet facet across the crown facets. This ring has a personal inscription inside the band for the couple that exchanged it. The date appears to be January, 1897. Recently retipped. 

Measurements: Size 6 US, 2.6 grams total weight. This ring may be sized in the 5-8 range for $75.
