Victorian Baby Belcher Ring
A lovely and classic example of a popular Victorian style (that also experienced a revival in the 1940s), this antique belcher ring is a delight on the finger. The belcher setting, similar to a buttercup, plays with negative space and soft texture with a mount that gently rises from the band with a scallop-like carving and delicate prongs. A bright and sparkly old European cut diamond with a chunky culet is the perfect complement to warm yellow gold.
An ideal pinky ring (or engagement ring for the extra-petite among us!), this ring is in very fine antique condition with the diamond securely set, though the prong tips could be slightly reinforced for ideal everyday, longterm wear. Minor evidence of resizing, which is also the likely cause of the ring's out of round shape.
