Late Victorian Half-Hoop Ring with "Whisky Soda" Rose Cut Diamonds

Period: c. 1890s - 1910s late/post Victorian. The inside of the shank shows a disrupted stamp, “C.L&” within a debossed oval. It most resembles the “C.L&S” stamp of Charles Lyster & Son, active in Birmingham, England c. 1890s-1910s. We presume that this was originally a larger ring intended for a man’s finger. It was likely down-sized at some point in its long history, leading to the partial disruption of the maker’s mark and removal of British marks. 

Materials: approx. 10K gold; diamonds

Dimensions: the center diamond has a diameter of 7.05 mm at its widest point; the ring stands 4.2 mm tall above the finger

Size: 7 1/2 (free sizing)

     Center: .85 carat Round Rose Cut diamond (GIA certified as Round Modified Brilliant; I color; I2 clarity)
     Sides: two rare, tall-domed antique Rose Cut diamonds with rich silvery-brown coloring and approx. I2 clarity overall.
