This engagement ring is truly sensational! A stunning 1.02ct Old Mine cut diamond (EGL certified "near colorless" I-J; SI1 clarity) sits proudly in a simple and elegant platinum 6-pronged mounting. With wonderful 1920's Art Deco details this setting was the perfect choice to showcase the large, glittering diamond. At the time this stone was cut (late 1800's) pigment and imperfections were acceptable if not expected in diamonds. In fact, such characteristics were appreciated as natural and therefore beautiful and fascinating. Today's standard of perfection was not in play at the time, therefore many antique diamonds do exhibit a visible pigment and minor inclusions. The technique for cutting diamonds at that time was also quite different from today's universal standards. The two most obvious differences between old mine cuts and all the others that followed are a faceted culet and an irregular girdle. Science and experience informed the cutters of the natural cleavage lines of the diamond and this was the initial strike taken to the stone. The formation of the girdle was a simple "rounding out" of the stone in an attempt to retain the most mass. As a result, the girdle is unique to each stone, like a fingerprint. All that being said, this diamond is a beautifully faceted specimen, a curiosity, a gem! The mounting is platinum with the head measuring approximately 8mm around. The table of the diamond will sit approximately 7.5mm above your finger. The detail from the ring's profile is exquisite...there is a somewhat regal quality about the pierced design combined with the elongated prongs...almost crown-like. The pointed shoulders taper slightly to become a comfortable 2mm wide shank. The current size is an 8 but can be sized up or down upon request. This is simply a remarkable ring...a gorgeous engagement ring for the lady that loves deco but also appreciates the beauty in simplicity.
The listed price includes a current EGL appraisal certificate which estimates the replacement value to be $8,400.00
I have this ring on a short-term memo so I have priced it very fairly in hopes that it will find a home relatively quickly. Please feel free to ask any questions! Images of the certificate are available upon request.
