Period: this piece is a direct mold / casting reproduction of a Victorian-era Neoclassical mount currently in our collection. The setting of an estate rose cut diamond into this mount maximizes finger "real estate" coverage while allowing for a very low-profile ring overall, making for a more subtle and pragmatic design. This piece weds the old with the new, beautiful with the practical, and bold with the soft-spoken. Plus we're suckers for French-inspired Neoclassicism--shoot us an email or call if you'd like to hear Matt nerd-out on the role of Neoclassical aesthetics in the history of art and jewelry design. Designs like this have a fascinating history!
