In 18-karat (tested) white gold, a die-struck solitaire engagement ring from around the early 1920s. The cathedral-style mounting has open work in a grille design on the sides and 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 on the pavilion side, appearing at the edge as seen from the top. In the ring, these marks are virtually invisible to the unaided eye. The half-shank is thin and should be replaced, at finger size 6 1/2. The ring measures 9.5 mm. wide across the top, where it rises about 7 mm. above the finger.
A good-sized diamond in a vintage engagement ring at a low price. A beautiful antique engagement ring to wear and see.
