Early Art Deco Era Prismatic Old Cut Diamond Cluster Ring in Platinum
* * SOLD * *
An elegant, low-profile, Art Deco era cluster ring, beautifully modeled in platinum, and set with a bevy of old cut diamonds. The ring's three, primary, old European cut diamonds are arranged, horizontally, across its rectangular face, where they are bead set into square seats. Trios of smaller OEC diamonds decorate its shoulders, where they nest in graduating seats that mirror the design of the ring face. Further diamonds (old mine cuts) encrust the ring's bowed, modified gallery. These OMC diamonds, both singles and pairs, are bead set into shapely seats that curve to create a clever visual effect. Milgrain details abound! The ring's shoulders are decorated with feathery hand-engraving and a series of orange blossoms. The slender ring shank tapers toward the base. We love this ring for its unique form, and for its incredible icy, sparkle— so much work went into these Art Deco era rings! Diamond CTW is approx 1.25 carats. Diamonds are white and lively (G/H, VS/SI). This old darling is crisp and precisely-made— it would make a wonderful, unusual engagement ring!

This ring's unique geometry makes it challenging to capture a representative, flat-facing shot of the ring face— its north and south panels have a subtly-rounded, almost bombe profile, while its face and shoulders are linear and flat, giving the ring a prismatic appearance. Because of the precise angles at work here, all front view shots look a bit strange and/or off-kilter. This ring is lovelier in person!
