Here is an exquisite hand-made 1920s wedding ring centering three round early American cut diamonds weighing about 0.30 carat total, with three small single cut diamonds on each side of the low domed top, weighing about 0.09 carat total. The millegrain detail surrounds each diamond, including the small ones, and along each side and down the beautiful, ornately engraved shank. Delicately pierced around the three central diamonds, the impression is of bursts of brilliance within finely wrought lace.
With such delicacy, the ring is in overall very good condition. However, there are very fine cracks on one side, where the shank meets the top; and a very small break in the design on one shoulder. I believe the ring can safely be worn in its present condition as long as it is not subjected to strenuous wear; but if you wish I can also consult my jeweler (who has been at the bench for 50 years) about shoring up these deficiencies.
The finger size is 3 1/2. This ring can be sized larger only to a limited degree, by about one full size. That means it is for a small finger. The piece is in 19-karat gold (as stamped), an alloy that was used in the early days of white gold, in the 1920s, when platinum became more scarce due to the first World War. There is a trademark, as yet unidentified.
This ring is actually moving to see, combining as it does the detailed craftsmanship of nearly 100 years ago with timeless grace. Please let me know if you have any questions!
