Late Art Deco Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring 0.83ct center
A stunning diamond engagement ring from the late Art Deco (ca1932) era! Crafted in platinum, this gorgeous piece features a stunning old European Cut diamond at its center, weighing approximately 0.83ct with F/G color and VS1 clarity. The sparkling diamond is prong set within a square box setting, and catches the light beautifully with every turn. A diamond encrusted heart-shaped motif with a 3-dimensional design adorns the shoulders, creating a shimmering, romantic appeal and an intricate wirework design forms the edges of the setting. Lovely milgrained details are found throughout the centerpiece and geometric etching lightly lines the edges of the band which graduates slightly towards the back. Stamped inside of the shank is "10% IRID. PLAT." and a faded engraving that reads "G.C. to ...A. 9.9.32." The ring was appraised in December 2018 by an independent Graduate Gemologist and has a retail replacement value of $5,000.00. It looks absolutely beautiful when worn and would make a stunning engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring is a finger size 5.25, however, it could easily be resized. The diamond encrusted centerpiece measures a little more than 1/2" wide and is 1/4" tall and rests a little more than 1/8" above the finger when worn. The graduated band measures 1.5mm at the back.
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 and securely set.
