Art Deco Platinum Colorless Asscher Cut Diamond & Emerald Ring 3.63ct
This outstanding ring from the Art Deco era (ca1920) is simply magnificent! An exquisite Asscher Cut diamond rests at the center, held within a 4-prong setting. The luscious diamond weighs 3.63ct and is positively radiant in person, with D color and VS1 clarity. An octagonal-shaped border of emeralds surrounds the diamond, forming a spectacular gemstone halo! The genuine emeralds have a stunning natural color and are channel set, creating a seamless band of vivid green. A pattern of fine filigree detail covers the undercarriage of the mounting, complete with delicate cutouts that give a lacy appearance to the design. Lining the shoulders of the ring are 6 graduating old Mine Cut diamonds, adding a gorgeous sparkle! The bead set stones weigh approximately .30ctw combined and are framed by fine milgrain accents. Accompanying the center diamond is a Diamond Grading Report issued by GIA (the Gemological Institute of America), which was issued in December 2016 and confirms the stone's results as stated above. When worn, this breathtaking ring makes a striking statement that is impossible to miss. It would make a once-in-a-lifetime engagement ring for someone special!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 5.5, but could easily be re-sized up or down. The diamond and emerald centerpiece measures 1/2" tall, 3/8" wide, and rests 1/4" high. The band measures just over 1mm wide in 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 and emeralds, all of which are intact and securely set.
