SIDNEY BERMAN & CO. Vintage Large 14kt Diamond Flower Ring 0.35ctw
A fabulous Vintage diamond flower ring from the 1950s era by New York City ring designer Sidney Berman & Company, Inc.! Crafted in 14kt yellow and white gold, this relatively large piece has a fantastic Mid-Century modern appeal. A 3-dimensional wavy wirework design forms a unique raised border that surrounds a cluster of sparkling diamonds at the center of the band. The Full Cut diamonds weigh approximately 0.35ctw combined and rest in a raised prong white gold setting, creating a wonderful mixed metals design. Resting below the centerpiece is a border of smoothly polished petals that curve downwards, finishing the wonderful floral design. The centerpiece rests on a stacked wirework band that graduates towards the back, and stamped inside of the shank is a "14K" gold purity mark besides the Sidney Berman & Co. "SB" hallmark. A simply fabulous Mid Century Modern ring, this piece would make an incredible statement piece when worn!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.75, but could be re-sized. The centerpiece measures approximately 1" in diameter and rests about 1/2" above the finger when worn. The graduated band measures 4mm wide at the back. The ring has an overall pennyweight of 8.4dwt (13.1 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to any of the diamonds, all of which are intact and securely set.
