Art Deco Platinum Diamond "Step-Up" Engagement Ring 0.85ct
A stunning diamond engagement ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! Made of platinum, the ring has a lovely "step-up" mounting lined with sparkling diamonds. Three diamond "steps" form the shoulders, framing a gorgeous .85ct old European Cut diamond in the center. The center stone rests in a square prong setting and has estimated I color and VS2 clarity. The six accent diamonds that line the steps of the shoulders are single cut stones, which are micro prong set within square shaped settings. The accent diamonds weigh approximately .15ctw and have H-I range color and VS range clarity. An airline cutout is visible from the side of the ring, accentuating the tiered step design, and a smooth band completes the look. Stamped inside the shank is "PLAT." along with an engraved inscription, which reads "T.D. to L.P.A. July 16 1930." The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Graduate Gemologist in November 2016 and has a stated retail replacement value of $6,000.00 . A timeless and classic beauty, this vintage ring would make a very special engagement piece!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.5, but could be easily re-sized up or down. When worn, the center of the ring rests approximately 1/4" above the finger. The tapered band measures approximately 2mm at the sides, and 1.5mm 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 the diamonds, all of which are intact and securely set.
