Art Deco Platinum One Carat Diamond Engagement Ring
This is exactly what comes into my mind when I visualize an Art Deco engagement ring. Something in platinum with a beautiful balance of strong geometry and elegance with minimal flair. And indeed that describes this ring perfectly! Carved from solid platinum, likely in the late 1920s or early 1930s, it is an outstanding example of Art Deco design. The clean, geometric influence is obvious and the intentional omission of fussy details gives it that timeless quality we all love. The main stone is an absolutely brilliant Old European cut diamond weighing approximately 1.05ct and estimated as H-I color, VS2 clarity. It is surrounded by tapered shoulders set with 3 baguette cut diamonds on each. The main stone and shoulders sit slightly elevated above a field of 8 bead-set diamonds. Where all points come together to meet the shank on each side there is a wonderful belt strap-like detail that punctuates the final edge of the design. The profile is relatively low measuring only 5 mm to the table of the diamond. North to South the face of the ring measures 9 mm and across the width from the outermost baguettes the measurement is 15mm. Currently measuring 6 on the mandrel, sizing up or down is available upon request. Layaway is available as well so please don’t hesitate to ask about those details.
