Art Deco Platinum Diamond "Step-Up" Engagement Ring 1.05ct
A gorgeous 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 1.05ct old European Cut diamond in the center. The center stone rests in a square prong setting and has J color and VS2 clarity. The 12 accent diamonds that line the steps of the shoulders are micro prong set, and weigh approximately .30ctw with H-I range color and VS-SI1 range clarity. An airline cutout is visible from the side of the ring, accentuating the tiered step design, and a decorative engraved band completes the look. Stamped inside the shank is "IRID. PLAT." The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Graduate Gemologist in December 2016 and has a stated retail replacement value of $10,100.00 . A timeless and classic beauty, this vintage ring would make a very special engagement piece!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.25, 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 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 any of the diamonds, all of which are intact and securely set.
