Mid Century Natural Pearl & Old Cut Diamond Ring, circa 1950
Everything about this vintage pearl and diamond ring is wonderful. The old European cut diamond in the centre (weighing approximately half a carat) is high white and bright, and is rubover set in milgrained white gold. To the ‘north’ and ‘south’ of the centre stone are creamy, lustrous, natural pearls (certified as not cultured). Two crescents, each set with five rose cut diamonds, embrace the central trilogy of gems, leading to a triple-wire shank which splits at the shoulders. Exception design executed with exception gems.
Accompanied by a pearl report from Gemmological Certification Services (GCS) stating the pearls are natural, saltwater.
