Art Deco 0.40 Carat Old Cut Diamond Engagement Ring, circa 1915
Super cute. The white and bright old mine cut diamond in the centre is secured in an eight claw platinum collet that sits nice and low on the ringer. The platinum shoulders hold six (three either side) smaller old cut diamonds, leading to a soft knife-edge band. An uncomplicated but eye-catching vintage delight.
