Retro Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring 0.97ct center
A gorgeous diamond engagement ring from the late Retro (ca1950s) era! Crafted in platinum, this beautiful piece holds a stunning old European Cut diamond at the center of an classic design. The prong set stone has a total approximate weight of 0.97ct, and exhibits G color and I-1clarity, sparkling beautifully in the light with every turn. Two graduated baguette diamonds rest at either shoulder, weighing approximately 0.40ctw combined and exhibiting G/H range color and VS-1 clarity. Completing the design are delicate airline cutouts below the mounting, and a smoothly polished band that graduates towards the back. Stamped inside of the shank is a "PT950" purity mark. The ring was appraised in November 2019 by an independent and accredited GIA-certified gemologist and has a stated retail replacement value of $5,300.00. The ring is positively radiant, delivering a spectacular sparkle when worn, and would make a perfect engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6, but could easily be resized. The center stone rests a little more than 1/4" above the finger when worn. The band measures 1.5mm wide 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 or to any of the diamonds, all of which are intact and securely set. There is a tiny chip on the edge of the center diamond, however it is not visible due to the prong location.
