An Art Deco era engagement ring, modeled in 18k yellow gold and platinum, whose central gem is a lively, .40 carat old mine cut diamond. This vibrant, hand-cut diamond is held in a round, milgrain-edged bezel, where it is surrounded by seven, floating, pennant-shaped seats. Each of these pennant seats holds a smaller, bead-set, old mine cut diamond, and the negative space between them creates the shape of a seven-pointed star. The ring's softly-domed face rests atop the softly domed back of the ring head, giving the head a pillow-like structure. The ring's split, cathedral-style shank is notched at the shoulder, and it tapers toward the base. This is an especially charming ring— its proportions are wonderful, and its unique, star face gives it a sweet, magical vibe. We also love the scalloped edges of the ring head and the abundant, sparkling, milgrain details! Marked for purity. CTW is approx .75 carats.

Notes

An old mine cut diamond is characterized by its off-round shape, small table, high crown, and open culet. While it's technically true that all diamonds are unique, old, hand-cut diamonds have a soulfulness that can't be matched by contemporary diamonds, and they actually look unique.
