Art Deco Platinum Diamond + Sapphire Engagement Ring 1.50ct center
An outstanding engagement ring from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! This stunning piece is crafted in platinum and features a gorgeous old European Cut diamond resting in the center of an exquisite setting. The bead set diamond weighs approximately 1.50ct and is positively radiant in person, exhibiting K/L color and VS1 clarity. An octagonal-shaped border of sapphires surrounds the diamond to form a spectacular gemstone halo complemented by a lovely milgrain frame. With approximately 0.50ctw in total, the French Cut sapphires have stunning color, creating a seamless band of deep, vivid blue. Accenting the shoulders of the ring are six Single Cut diamonds weighing approximately 0.11ctw, adding a gorgeous sparkle. Feminine swirls adorn the sides of the ring while soft engraving decorates the shoulders and sides of the shank, completing the look. The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA-certified Graduate Gemologist in October of 2020 and has a stated retail replacement value of $12,600.00. When worn, the ring is absolutely breathtaking and impossible to miss. It would make a once-in-a-lifetime engagement ring for someone special!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 9 but could be resized. The sapphire and diamond centerpiece measures a little less than 1/2" tall and wide and rests 1/8" atop the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting and all of the diamonds are intact. Some sapphires show slight abrasion, commensurate with age, but nothing which is noticeable when the ring is worn, nor does it impact the integrity or beauty of the piece.
