Gem Set Love

This is a sweet Victorian buttercup ring with a twist. A chunky 0.10ct old mine cut diamond is held in a 14k gold buttercup setting that has been sculpted into a twist and then engraved with a scalloped pattern. The term "buttercup" is another name for the unique belcher style of setting: the prongs that hold the stone are an integrated part of the ring. Popular in the late 1800s, this style offers a sleek, tapered design and a low profile. The sculpted twist and engraving makes this 19th Century engagement ring stand out from the crowd. Circa 1890.
