Note: You cannot look at rose cut diamond jewelry factually with a recut formula in mind, its value is object driven.

This is a rare find.
The rose cut diamonds are open backed (a characteristic late Victorian jewelry).
In 1953, GIA formally created its diamond grading system, known as the 4 C's. The 4 Cs of diamond quality are the universally recognized diamond grading system still to be used today. 1n 1955, GIA presented its first diamond grading reports, which became the hallmark of grading reports in the diamond industry. Before this time in antiquity clients did not care about diamond grading. It was based more so on the size of the diamonds ( according to budget) , style, and sentiment. This ring is a wonderful example of the Victorian era, just beautiful!
