This domed Edwardian ring is die-struck with exciting detail in a floral design surrounding the old European cut diamond, which is ringed with ten single cut diamonds. The metal is platinum, as stamped and confirmed by acid testing. The shank has been made larger in 14-karat white gold. The top measures 11.2 mm. wide (from north to south) and cuts a low profile, rising to a little under 4.5 mm. above the finger.
The center diamond weighs about 1.50 carats, with K color and SI1 clarity. It has the high crown, small crown, and bright flashes against a dark background that are typical of old European cut diamonds. The single cuts weigh about 0.30 carat total. Die-striking, which was in its first decade or so when this ring was made c. 1920, gives sharp detail, as can be seen around the flower heads and the wheat design down the narrow shank. Up inside the top, the settings underneath the single cuts have been reinforced with circles of white metal.
The item is in overall very good vintage condition. It is certain to delight.
