A wonderful diamond engagement ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This beautiful engagement ring has a single old Mine Cut diamond stone which sits in a fabulous "step-up" platinum setting. The stone, which is prong set in an octagonal box mounting, has I color, SI1 clarity and a total weight of 0.24ct. The "step-up" mounting has milgrained details and ornate wirework on its sides. Resting within the "steps" are 8 additional sparkling diamonds. All 8 diamonds are bead set in a box setting and have an approximate total weight of .17ct tw. The mounting is simply wonderful with a beautiful etched design which carries down the shoulders of the band. The overall total diamond weight of the ring is approximately .41ct tw. There is a hand engraved message on the inside shank which is not eligible. The ring was appraised by an independent Gemologist in April 2011 and has a retail replacement value of $2,400.00. It is an absolutely gorgeous and piece and would make a perfect engagement ring!

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the platinum setting and all of the diamonds are intact.
