Art Deco 1.62 Carat Old Cut Diamond Ring, circa 1940
Such a striking ring. The old European cut diamond in the centre is internally clean, very lively and displays a distinct champagne tone. The centre stone is set within a milgrained platinum “box.” Trapezium shaped “boxes” either side are each set with two transitional cuts and a large old European cut. The scrolling detail in the gallery belies the more geometric top of the ring, and leads to a slim, flat shank. Sensational and unique.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report.
