can yo take the ring to an antique jewellery shop and ask them fi they have a similar sized stone that would fit the gap? you maybe will have to buy another ring and they will take the stone out

they should be able to do it all for you

What about Hatton Gardens?

I thought Hatton Garden was all new stff

Perhaps if you asked them, they may have the contacts in the trade to get hold of some? Not sure but worth a shot?

what's wrong with a new diamond? after all, all diamonds are millions of years old anyway.

does it have to be an old diamond? just get a new one!

There is the london diamond centre there and if they can't help you no-one can.

Hirschfelds stock old cut diamonds for repairs. Plenty of jewellers do, just make sure you specify you want the replacement to match the age and cut of the original.

Thank you Saint-have added that one to my faves and will call them.

Cod-your humour always gives me a giggle!!

is it the diamond though that's 'victorian' or the setting?

if its a change in the cut, you can get them cut anyway you want from hatton garden I think

sounds worth a try anywy

Defo the diamond-I got them set in a modern ring.
