Art Deco 1.97 Carat Old Cut Diamond, Rose Cut Diamond & Sapphire Cluster Ring, circa 1940
Sheer magnificence. The central old European cut diamond is glowingly white, clean and bursting with light and fire. Because rose cut diamonds don’t have as much sparkle as brillianteered stones, the diamonds in the surround enhance rather than compete with the main diamond. The outside of the cluster is accented by curved baguette cut sapphires and further fine detailing to the metal work. Beautifully ornate shoulders lead to a flat yellow gold band. This, quite frankly, is a masterpiece.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report.
