Please note... I can make a payment plan for this ring.... Thanks
I came across this fabulous earth mined diamond ring on my travels and thought it was great value and stunning quality and is very 'on trend' at the moment, and I definitely wanted to offer it to you my lovely people.
It is a Toi et Moi ring. A toi et moi (you and me in French) is a two stone ring set in a 'bypass' style. JFK proposed to Jackie Kennedy with a Toi er Moi ring and it is a classic design that seems to never go out of date.
This ring is incredibly special as it features an old cut diamond and a modern cut diamond. Bringing the old and the new, the antique and modern together. This ring has no hallmarks on it as I believe it was Mae by hand by an artisan jewellery to combine two engagements rings together. The gold however tests for 18ct. The diamonds are vibrant and sparkling and are a nice bright white colour with lots of 'flash'. They each weigh approx. .25 carats. Making this ring a total .50 carat of earth mined genuine diamonds. The diamond measure 4.4mm each an are set with 8 claws each. There is hardly any wear to the band and it measures 2mm in width.
This ring is a size 5 3/4 (US) or UK 'L'. This can be resized by any jeweller.
You order will come in a beautiful vintage style velvet ring box (handmade) and the postage is insured, tracked and registered.
Any questions? please ask.
I offer a 100% Money back guarantee on this ring, if you are not happy and return it in the same condition that I sent it in.
Anyone who has followed SWALK'S journey knows that it all started before I had children when I earned my living by selling antiques. Most of those antiques were jewellery, accessories, and silver.
While travelling around search for antique seals I often come across a beautiful piece at a great price and think to myself. "Gosh, if I was still in the vintage/antique jewellery game that would be an awesome buy".
I am often at auctions, markets and antique shops and have decided to combine my passion for high quality beautiful jewellery and and wax seals and offer them in this section of my shop.
The three principals that I will follow in this section are:
*The jewellery is vintage or antique
All of the jewellery I offer here will have some age to them. I will not be offering replicas or 'in the style of'.
*The best quality I can find.
I will only offer jewellery of the best quality I can find. Often times, vintage and antique jewellery is of superior quality to modern manufactured jewellery. Often many of them are handmade, hand etched or hand set.
*The best price I can manage.
Vintage and antique jewellery is often less expensive than modern jewellery. The gold/ silver/ has already been mined. The stones have already been cut and polished. The Jeweller's fees and labour expenses are paid when it is originally made. The original Jewellery sellers have already earned their profits when they are sold. So often the prices are great value compared to high street Jewellery stores.
Vintage SWALK is good for the environment!
It takes significant resources to mine gemstones and precious metals which makes it hard to produce jewellery in a truly environmentally friendly way. Buying antique and vintage jewellery makes you a conservator rather than a consumer.
Conflict diamonds (also known as “blood diamonds”) only came into existence in the 1980s with civil war in Africa. Diamond jewellery created before this time are untarnished by this unpleasant and badly regulated controversy.
Vintage jewellery is more unique!
Most vintage and antique jewellery were made in very small batches or are one of a kind. Therefore you can find unique are rare pieces.
