Description

Early diamond solitaire ring. Set centrally with a rectangular point cut diamond in a closed back rubover setting with an approximate weight of 0.50 carats, to an octofoil design with four pairs of arching cusps, flanked by smoothly integrated trumpeting shoulders which taper to a solid D-shape shank, inscribed to the interior in Latin 'SUM.SINGNUM.AMORIS +', translated as 'I am a token of love'. Tested yellow gold, approximately 7.6g in weight, circa 16th century, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.

This is an exceptional museum quality example of a post medieval diamond set betrothal or marriage ring and is one of the earliest which would have been created.
