Old Mine Cut Diamond Dinner Ring, Circa 1920
This 1920s 18k gold dinner ring is such an easy and flattering shape. More often, Art Deco era dinner rings can be quite elongated or narrow. This example is somewhat unique in that it is more of a shield shape. It is set with five old mine cut diamonds, the largest of which has an incredibly beautiful high crown and weighs approximately .50cts. The four smaller diamonds are equally as beautiful and each weigh approximately .12ct for an overall total of nearly one carat for the ring. Set in between the diamonds are four little square cut sapphires. Not only does the ring offer a flattering shape but it has a very thoughtful contour, sitting low and comfortable on your finger. The north and south points of the ring come together at the sides and gradually merge into pierced shoulders and a beautifully carved tapered shank. The measurement north to south is 16.5mm and east to west from the outer edges of the two diamond mountings is also 16.5mm. The shank is 1.5mm at the base and it is hallmarked 18k on the inside. The ring is currently a size 8 and sizing up or down is available upon request.
