18-Karat White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring, c. 195518-Karat White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring, c. 195518-Karat White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring, c. 1955

A vintage 1950s solitaire engagement ring in 18-karat (as stamped) white gold, mounted with a round brilliant cut diamond weighing about 0.52 carat, having approximate quality of I color and VS1 clarity. If you want ideal cutting by today's standards, this isn't it -- because of its spready table, deep pavilion and thick girdle, But the personality of this stone is in its sudden bursts of brilliance and fire against a dark background, which speaks of the time (1950s) when it was made.

The criss-cross florentine finish more than halfway down the shoulders is exceptionally sharp, no surprise when you consider that the piece is signed by the venerable Baltimore retailer/manufacturer Stieff, creators of one of the famous, ornate "Baltimore Roses" sterling silver flatware patterns. The quality of this ring is evident from its excellent vintage condition. Finger size 5 1/2. A small American treasure.
