C.D. PEACOCK Art Deco Platinum Diamond + Sapphire Ring
A spectacular late Art Deco (ca1930s) era diamond and sapphire ring from C. D. Peacock, an acclaimed Chicago jeweler. Crafted in platinum, this fabulous piece boasts a wonderful symmetrical bypass design adorned with brilliant gemstones.

The larger prong set stones weigh approximately 0.90ct each, the diamond displaying H color and SI2 clarity. The remaining accent stones have a collective total weight of approximately 1.00ctw, creating a beautiful, sparkling complement.
