Edwardian Platinum/18kt "Trilogy" 3-Stone Diamond Ring
A beautiful three-stone diamond ring from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! This gorgeous piece is crafted in 18kt yellow gold and topped with platinum accents, creating a wonderful mixed metals appeal. Three sparkling diamonds asymmetrically line the center, including a Single Cut and two old Mine Cuts. A beautiful split band frames the diamonds at either side, intertwining with platinum-topped swirls to create a delicate cut-out design. The carved shoulders transition into a smooth band that graduates slightly towards the back, and stamped inside of the shank is an "18" gold purity mark. When given as engagement rings, designs incorporating three-stone rings are often known as "trilogy" or "trinity" rings, with each stone representing the couple's "past, present, and future" together. Whether worn as an engagement piece or simply a beautiful accessory, this enchanting Edwardian ring would make a special addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 8.5, but could easily be re-sized. The diamond centerpiece measures approximately 3/8" tall and rests about 1/8" above the finger when worn. The graduated band measures 2mm 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 and gold setting. The diamonds are intact and securely set. There is a very minor surface indent on the side of the ring, however it is not noticeable when worn.
