A positively outstanding diamond ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! The intricate platinum setting frames a gorgeous old European Cut diamond at the center, held within a 4 double-prong setting. The diamond weighs 3.90ct, and has M color and VS1 clarity. An elaborate filigree motif decorates the sides and shoulders of the mounting, complete with wirework swirls, lacy cutouts, fine milgrain detail, and hand engraved accents. Additionally, there are 10 delicate Mine Cut diamonds scattered throughout the filigree design, weighing approximately .30ctw. The sparkling accent stones are the perfect compliment to the breathtaking center diamond. As the band nears the back, it tapers in slightly, and is stamped "PLAT" and "1489" inside the shank. The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Graduate Gemologist in March 2018, and has a stated retail replacement value of $50,000.00 When worn, the grandeur of the ring is simply magnificent and impossible to miss. It would make an exquisite vintage engagement ring or special statement piece!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.5, but could be resized. When worn, the diamond centerpiece rests approximately 1/4" above the finger. The tapered band measures about 2mm 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 filigree setting. The center diamond and accent diamonds are all intact and securely set.
