Art Deco Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring 1.00ct
A gorgeous diamond engagement ring from the late Art Deco (ca1929) era! This platinum ring holds a stunning 1.00ct old European Cut diamond at the center. The sparkling stone rests within a 4-prong setting, and exhibits J color and VS2 clarity, catching the light beautifully with every turn. Elegant baguette diamonds adorn each shoulder of the mounting, weighing approximately 0.10ctw, with H-I range color and S1 clarity. Completing the design is a slim band with a smoothly polished finish that graduates slightly towards the back. Stamped inside the shank are various hallmarks, including a "P&M" maker's mark, "IRID PLAT" purity mark, and a possible patent number "L7067." There is also an engraving in a bold scrip that reads, "J.H.B. to V.R. JAN 18 1903-1929." The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA-certified Graduate Gemologist in October 2018, and has a stated retail replacement value of $9,800.00. When worn, the piece delivers a spectacular sparkle and would make stunning engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.5, but could easily be resized. The centerpiece rests 1/4" above the finger when worn. The tapered band measures 1.5mm 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. The diamonds are all intact and securely set.
