Vintage 1.55ct Diamond Engagement Ring Solitaire, Retro Platinum and 18k Gold

In real estate it might be location, location, location, but in jewelry it's style, style, style, and this ring has it in spades! A gorgeous engagement ring of style and substance, for a woman (or frankly, a man) who has both. This ring truly showcases the fabulous luxury of the Retro style.

This circa 1940 ring was hand crafted with a 2.3 mm 18 karat yellow gold half round band meeting a hand wrought platinum gallery with a split shank detail. The platinum has wonderful scrolling details on the sides and the square top measures 13.7 mm across and holds a 1.55 carat fabulous transitional cut diamond with a very small culet. This stunning stone measures 7.3 x 7.2 x 4.7 mm and is H/I in color and VS2 in clarity, it flashes and sparkles with every slight move of the hand. This kind of hand wrought platinum mounting is very hard to do and takes quite a high level of skill. The ring is marked on the inside with '1.55', the weight of the diamond (the diamond has been carefully measured to verify this weight). The metal has been carefully acid tested to verify content. The ring is a size 7 but could be re-sized to suit. The ring weighs 7.2 grams. This ring comes with a full independent GIA appraisal and is valued at $18,100.00.

I love, love, love this ring! Small diamonds sparkle and twinkle, but big diamonds like this one flash, and I don't know about you, but I love the flash! This ring would make a fantastic and unusual engagement ring, the platinum mount is very protective of the stone, making it a good choice for someone who might be a little bit tough on a ring.
