1940s OEC Diamond Engagement Ring with Marquise Shoulders in Platinum
* * SOLD * *
An elegant 1940s engagement ring, modeled in platinum, whose primary gem is a one carat old European cut diamond. This lively, central gem (J/VVS) is mounted in a squarish, cutwork basket, where it is held in four "picture-corner" style tabs. A pair of bezel-set, marquise-shaped diamonds flank the central gem, and below them a pair of round, single cut diamonds. The linear, east/west arrangement of different diamond shapes lends this classic engagement ring a playful air. The ring's four, small bezels are finished with milgrain edges; its half-round shank tapers toward the base. We see an exclamation point in the arrangment of accent diamonds, and a typically-Art-Deco, architectural gesture in the gallery.
