AN ENGRAVED DIAMOND. One of the most famous rings in the world (wrrites our' London correspondent) is at present, to be seen at Mr, Bryce Wright's museum, in Savile-row. The ring is of the finest Indian workmanship, and was produced some time between 1550 and 1G50—the best period of Indian art. It contains as a centre- piece a most magnificent engraved diamond, which is of a much earlier date than the ring itself, having been brought from Persia into Ilindostan by the founders of the Mogul Empire, It became the property of the Queen of Delhi, and previous to the fall of that town was kept in the Treasury of the Mogul Emperors. There are only about five other cut or engraved diamonds in existence, her Majesty, it will be remembered, being in 11 possession of one and the Prince of Wales owning another.
