Early 20th Century Three Stone OMC Diamond Ring
with Laurels & Feathers, in Platinum
* * SOLD * *
A beautiful early-twentieth-century engagement ring, modeled in platinum, whose primary gem is a 1.3 carat old mine cut diamond (H/I, VS1). This beautiful hand-cut diamond has a crisp "star-like" faceting pattern that creates a kaleidoscope effect in the face of the stone; it has the small table, steep crown facets, and open culet that distinguish this beloved old cut. This primary diamond is held in a floating bezel, where it is flanked by a pair of smaller, "chunky" old mine cut diamonds. Further old cut diamonds are bead-set alongside this supporting pair, where they add sparkle to the ring face. This softly-bombe, hand-pierced setting is full of movement and texture— curving sections of cutwork decor (laurel branches) decorate the ring's gallery, along with a series of small precise circles. Linear sections of laurel branch cutwork also decorate the ring's shoulders, where they intersect with a delicate band of engraved feather decor. The carefully balanced elements of this design, combined with its nods to the natural world, give it a serene quality we find especially compelling! Wonderful old mounts like these are becoming a rarity.
c. 1910 - 1920
