Antique Knife Wire & Bows OEC Diamond Engagement Ring in Platinum
* * SOLD * *
An early 20th century engagement ring, modeled in platinum, whose primary gem is a .38 carat old European cut diamond. This eye-shaped ring is softly-bombe and brimming with beautiful details— delicate knife-wire sections flank the central diamond's squarish seat, and languid, diamond-set bows decorate the ring's shoulders. Additional bead-set diamonds add sparkle to the gallery. This ring was made and pierced entirely by hand— you can see evidence of this in our highly magnified photos, but the ring presents bright white and very finely detailed in wear.
