VINTAGE DIAMOND GEMSTONE EASTERN STAR RING TWO TONE WHITE YELLOW GOLD ESTATE
An enduring connection to the past both in symbology and provenance, this vintage Eastern Star ring is a striking and vintage keepsake. An offshoot of the Free Masons, the Order of the Eastern Star was founded in the mid-1800s and is a fraternal order open to both men and women. In accordance with the Eastern Star symbol, each point of the star is set with a different hue of custom cut gemstone. This is very rare to find as typically the stones in these antique pieces are missing or broken. This one is very nicely intact! The star is additionally accented by bright and vibrant natural diamonds.
The diamonds are high quality. Graded F-G for color and VS for clarity, the diamonds are bright white and exceptionally clean. They display vibrant brilliance. The accent gemstones are brilliant and vibrantly saturated. It is likely that these gemstones are synthetic, as this was typical for the time period; however, importantly, they are original to the piece and were cut by hand to fit the setting perfectly. The diamonds are completely natural. The setting is crafted in 10k white and yellow gold. The ring measures 15.0mm across north south and 5.9mm from finger to top.
