Art Deco Era Butterflies 1.2 Carat OMC Diamond Engagement Ring in Platinum
* * SOLD * *
An exceptional Art Deco era engagement ring, modeled in platinum, whose primary gem is a 1.21 carat old mine cushion cut diamond (I/J, SI1). This lively, hand-cut diamond is held in four, tab-style prongs. It is flanked by two pairs of french cut, blue sapphires that grace the ring's elaborate shoulders, reading like dashes astride its large, central gem. This ring is replete with beautifully-balanced, elegant details— its sculpted head is engraved (on the north and south lobes) with fine, fanning, plume-like details that are repeat in its shoulder decor. Two pairs of paisley-shaped seats are positioned alongside the ring's aforementioned sapphire "dashes", and each of these paisleys is set with a small, old mine cut diamond. These plume and paisley elements come together around the paired sapphires to suggest the graceful form of a butterfly, or moth. The ring's slender, half-round shank tapers toward the base. This is a very special engagement ring— filigree settings featuring insect decor are rare! This is marked for purity.
This ring can be resized (down to US 5 and up to US 8 1/2). Resizing fo this ring is complimentary.
