Description: Simple gold hoop forks at the shoulders and ends in golden scrolls at the 4 points that it meets the bezel. Between the forked shoulders are small colette-set rose-cut diamonds. The top of the settings is sterling silver, which was typically used over gold in Victorian jewelry in order to show off the diamonds to better effect. The bezel is a rectangle that runs lengthwise along the finger. Openwork design of tri-lobed, long, elegant foliage on twigs surround a central claw-set old mine cut diamond. The foliage is set with small rose cut diamonds set in filigree silver. Delicate and pretty and very well made ring. Great as a birthday or graduation gift or any other celebration. <P><P>
