English Diamond Band
A heavy English 18 carat gold gypsy ring with an old cut diamond of approximately 0.25ct.
Victorian gypsy rings are one of the most distinctive jewels of the Victorian era. This type of setting is ideal for busy individuals who like to wear their jewelry all day and every day. It is a safe and secure setting for the stone because the diamond is surrounded by the band. Several stories explain the origin of the name.
The name and the type of setting can be traced back to the 19th century, when women would travel through the countryside, fearful that gypsies might try and steal their valuables. In response to how easily they imagined it would be to snatch a gem from a prong setting, where the stone or stones are raised in claw-setting, the gypsy ring was invented, which secured the stones safely in place within, rather than upon, the band.
