Both my engagement ring and wedding band are in this style. My engagement ring was made in the 1890s. They refered to the style as “half hoop” rings. Maybe it’s just the photos, but the stones do not seem to shine like diamonds. Of course, a jeweler would be able to tell you.

It doesn’t look like real diamonds to me from what I can tell in the picture. Are you sure it is an antique. Or maybe it was made more recently to look like an antique?

They may be paste stones or something but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re low quality OMCs, seems a lot of rings from that time period had heavily included hand cut diamonds.

@iamali:  To me this looks closer to Victorian or Edwardian, from the colour of the side stones (though bare in mind I’m basing it on one pic) they look like paste. The central stone is a different colour though which is odd, appearing whiter? Though it would be odd to me to replace the centre stone with a diamond and leave the others- I would take this to an antique jeweler for an evaulation
