Mid Century 1.08 Carat Old Cut Diamond Engagement Ring & Band, circa 1960
An impressive wedding and engagement ring set.
The engagement ring features a breathtakingly white old mine cut diamond, graded by HRD Antwerp as F colour, VS2 clarity. The stone is set in an open four-claw V collet, designed to allow as much light to pass through this rare white stone as possible. A baguette cut diamond is set in each shoulder, with an eight-cut diamond set ribbon appearing to thread through the top of the ring.
Because of its unusual profile the engagement ring comes with a later crafted wedding band which stacks neatly against it. Set with seventeen round brilliant cut diamonds in platinum.
