Art Deco 1.1ct Diamond Engagement Ring
* * SOLD * *
A striking Art Deco era engagement ring, modeled in platinum, featuring a 1.1 carat transitional cut diamond. This lovely central gem (F/SI1) rests in a slim milgrain bezel. It is supported by a bevy of smaller diamonds (both early modern brilliant cuts, and old mine cuts), that fill up both sides of the ring's ornate gallery, and decorate its open-work face. We especially love the diamond-set, cutaway, forked-pennant decor that flanks the primary diamond, like a pair of prim little collars. This motif is repeated in the ring’s sparkling gallery, where it is reminiscent of a widow's peak. This low-profile antique engagement ring is a real smokeshow— it glitters, fiercely. The slender half-round ring shank tapers toward the base. Marked "pt" for purity.
c. 1930 - 1940
