Hi, I've inherited a few diamond rings. One in particular I'm not sure on its history or worth just hoping somebody can help me it's not marked but is definitely real gold and diamond as we took it to a jeweller. Will attach picture in comments

Safest bet is warm water with plain blue dawn and a soft toothbrush. I also would dry it with a blow dryer on warm and low.

Let her soak a bit also, come back, clean, soak. Pretty intricate setting. Can't wait to read replies :)

Looks like they could be rose cuts. The setting screams Victorian to me (mid-late 1800s). A lot of stones from that era can appear "rustic" or not super shiny. Looking forward to seeing it cleaned!

I've cleaned it as best I can, will send it in for a professional clean in the next month or so.
Pictures really don't do it justice, partly due to my rubbish camera and less then perfect photography skills or lack of.

It does sparkle, a little back ground. My grandmother has had it 20+ years and a woman named lady Wolseley gave it her along with a few others will upload the 2 others I've cleaned and taken picture of in abother comment.

The ring also appear to have maybe a signature on the inside.


Here are the other two.

What lovely rings! How lucky you are to have inherited them. They all appear late 1800s-early 1900s to me.
