In 18-karat (tested) white gold, a die=struck solitaire engagement ring from the early 1920s. The cathedral-style mounting has open work in a grille design on the sides and also around what appear to be acanthus leaves on pedestals on the shoulders. There is noticeable wear to these motifs, consistent with the age of the ring, but there are no breaks or dents. The center old European cut diamond is bead-set low in an integrated octagonal setting. It weighs approximately 1,14 carats (by formula), and has estimated L color and I1 clarity, with three minor chips at the girdle (one is hidden by a prong). The grade-setting inclusion is a feather at the edge on the pavilion side, appearing at the edge as seen from the top, but in no way an obvious inclusion to the unaided eye. The shank is thinning, finger size 6 1/2. The ring measures 9.5 mm. wide across the top, where it rises about 7 mm. above the finger. Glints of brilliance and fire in a stately engagement ring tell the story of another time.
