Late Art Deco Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring 0.60ct
A stunning diamond engagement ring from the late Art Deco (ca1931) era! This beautiful piece is made of platinum and features an old European Cut diamond resting at the center of an intricate filigree wirework mounting. The diamond, which weighs approximately 0.60ct, is prong set within a octagonal-shaped setting and has H color and SI1 clarity. Decorating each shoulder of the ring are an additional four single cut diamonds, which together weigh 0.16ctw with H-I range color and VS range clarity. The mounting is simply exquisite, with fine filigree wirework and cutouts that form a flowing design. Hand-engraved accents and delicate milgrained detail travel along the outside of the band, completing the lovely design. The shank has several markings, including "PLATINUM", the initials "R.R.D to K.V...." and the date "...-14-31". It appears that the ring has been resized at some point, diminishing a portion of the initials and date. The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Gemologist in May 2016 and has a stated retail replacement value of $4,000.00. A very well-crafted Art Deco piece with a feminine design, it would make a wonderful engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a small finger size of 7.25 but could easily be re-sized.
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.
