Late 1800s Victorian Half-Hoop Five-Stone Diamond Band

Materials: 18K yellow gold (stamped 18 CT); platinum tips on inner prongs; diamonds

Inscription: faintly hand-inscribed “CB/d/M 8” (possibly the original jeweler’s method for tagging/identifying the ring, as tags and sharpies weren’t exactly as available as they are today. Indeed, this ring predates the modern ballpoint pen by about 50 years.)
