Masterfully detailed and meaningfully historied, this stunning vintage ring features a dazzling and substantial 1.13ct old European cut diamond! Exceptionally well cut, it displays absolutely fantastic sparkle and fire! This is an ideal cut old european diamond and it is in the upper echelon of cut quality amongst Europeans. We specialize in old diamonds and this one is truly one of the best cut Old Euros that one can ask for. The light reflection is fantastic and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Beautifully white and exceptionally clean, the diamond’s wide, hand cut facets dazzle with bold, bright sparkle and vividly colorful fire. The 14k white gold setting is expertly crafted with a chic geometric design, richly textured hand engraving, and elegant cutouts. Accented with custom cut sapphires, the design’s sharp lines and structural elements are complemented beautifully by the floral accents in the gallery. A wearable artifact of the illustrious Art Deco era, this ring is not only stunningly beautiful and glamorously brilliant with a dazzling diamond center, it also provides a meaningful and romantic connection to a past epoch.
The 1.13ct center diamond is exceptionally clean, graded VS2 for clarity. Even under 10x magnification, it is difficult to find any inclusions. Graded J for color, the diamond faces up bright white. The diamond’s sparkle is particularly bright which helps it appear very white. There truly is no warmth visible on the face up. The sapphires are a rich and even royal blue color. Part of its nearly century long journey, one of the sapphires has a minor surface abrasion at the tip. It does not jump to the eye and blends in nicely. It is likely that the sapphires are synthetic, as this was typical for the time period; however, more importantly, they are hand cut and original to the piece. The setting is expertly crafted by Art Deco artisans in solid 14k white gold. It is highly detailed and very well preserved. The ring measures 8.0mm across (north south) and 6.7mm from finger to top.
Handcrafted with a timelessly elegant and intricately detailed design, this striking beauty is an excellent choice for an enduring and meaningfully historied engagement or right hand ring. Once it has sold we will not be able to replace it.
