Retro 1.25 Carat Old European Cut Diamond “Sunburst” Ring, French, circa 1950
An excitingly unique ring. Twenty beautifully shaped “rays” burst from the central old European cut diamond, with each alternating ray topped by an eight-cut diamond. The spray gallery echoes the detail on the head of the ring, leading to a flat, split-shoulder shank. A big and bold ring; exquisitely designed and exquisitely made.
