Mid Century 0.84 Carat Old Curt Diamond & Sapphire Target Ring, circa 1950
A super funky and undeniably unique ring. The old European cut diamond in the centre is internally clean and displays a very soft yellowish hue. Extraordinarily, the diamond is fully embedded within a round, deep blue sapphire which is itself rubover set in yellow gold. The diamond set, platinum shoulders conform to a slim, D-shaped yellow gold shank. Utterly masterful.
