Art Deco Platinum 4 French Cut Diamonds & Sapphire Engagement Ring 1ctw
A beautiful and unusual engagement ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This spectacular ring holds four French cut diamonds at the center of a lovely platinum mounting. At first glance, the unique design almost gives the illusion of a single center stone, but offers a special appearance that the 4-stone cluster provides. The four French cut diamonds weigh approximately 1.00ctw combined, and have H-I range color and SI range clarity. Lining the shoulders of the ring are six square cut sapphires, which are channel set and weigh approximately .15ctw. The combination of the vivid blue sapphires and sparkling French cut diamonds is quite radiant in person! Completing the design is an engraved motif that travels along the sides and edges of the band. Stamped inside the shank is the number "24121." The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA-certified Graduate Gemologist in June of 2016 and has a stated retail replacement value of $5,000.00. An exquisite and rare Art Deco era piece, it would make an outstanding vintage engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.5, but could be resized up or down if necessary. The square-shaped centerpiece holding the French cut diamonds measures 6mm wide and tall, and rests about 1/4" above the finger when worn. The tapered band measures 2mm wide at the sides, and 1mm 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, and the sapphires and diamonds are intact and securely set. Some minor surface wear is present at the back of the platinum band, which is normal for an Art Deco era piece, and is not noticeable when worn.
