My mother in law had this ring that she gave to me – it is a Victorian “wedding cake” rose cut diamond cluster. The shank is yellow gold and the diamonds were wrapped up in silver, as at the time they didn’t have white gold alloy. The silver around the diamonds have gone all black and worn out, so we took it to the antique jewlrer in Hatton Garden, and he re wrapped the diamonds in white gold. Shank could have done with replacing too, but we decided to leave it as otherwise nothing original but the diamonds will be in the ring.
Now the hard part – posting the pictures, let’s see if I can do it!

I’m so completely jealous. I’m somewhat of a collector of authentic vintage jewelry and it’s extremely hard to find anything similar to that in such great condition.

Thank you so much guys. The diamonds in it are actually barely barely pink, rather than white. You can only see it properly under 3x magnification – slight pink tint.
It was restored in Hatton Garden by Andrew Ullman, he is a genius.
