Amazing Antique Diamond Rings
Diamond rings come in a variety of styles and while there are many beautiful contemporary ring designs, we have a soft spot for antique diamond ring designs. The breadth of creativity in many antique rings are simply amazing. We also love the use of a variety of precious stones which adds brilliant color to these rings.
We have selected six diamond rings to feature which we have found to be exceptionally beautiful.
Diamond, Emerald, Enamel & Gold Panther Ring from Cartier
This is a gorgeous diamond ring, made by Cartier. This ring has been made with a panther’s head at the top. The neck of the panther stretches down and curves around the finger when worn. The entire ring is made of fine 18K gold. The panther’s head has two emeralds set as the eyes and a black onyx set as the nose of the cat. The face and the outer band of this ring has been lined with diamond pave. This diamond pave is made of approximately 7 carats of beautiful round cut diamonds.
Diamond Ring with Cushion Cut Tanzanite
This is an impressive diamond ring which has been set with a large and beautiful cushion cut tanzanite which weighs nearly 23 carats. This center stone is secured by four pairs of claw prongs, one pair at each corner of the stone. The tanzanite was then surrounded by two full diamond halos. The inner diamond halo is framed with yellow gold while the outer diamond halo was done in white gold. This two tone gold gives the ring an extra burst of lustrous color which contrast so well with the deep blue of the tanzanite.
