A Vintage Art Deco Design Floral Trefoil Square Set Diamond Solitaire Ring (Assayed in London in 1969)
The brilliant cut diamond is set in a white precious metal (Platinum or white gold) square mount which is raised and open to the sides to allow light to shine through. The mount is captured between engraved Floral Trefoil shoulders which lead to an 18 carat yellow gold shank being a comfortable D-shape which tapers ever so slightly to the rear at approx 2mm wide and stamped with 18 (Gold purity), assayed in London and the markers mark as J&B in conjoined circles.

Instantly recognised as vintage by its design and when viewed even by window light, the diamond presents as lively and bright. Whilst the video helps to show this it does not compete with seeing the ring in person and the diamond looks much better in real life. The diamond is extremely clean from natural internal inclusions when examined with a 10 x loupe (Magnifying device) and due to the style of the setting, the diamond looks significantly larger than it is and provides good finger coverage. Due to the raised square head, the ring will lie flat against any wedding band and as is it made from yellow gold and white precious metal, it will work well with any colour of wedding band.
The principle diamond measures approx 4.1 mm in diameter this gives an estimated carat weight of 0.27 Carats.
Diamond Clarity & Cut The brilliant cut diamond is a beautiful colourless white with flawless clarity and no obvious inclusions found when examined with a 10 x loupe (Magnifying device) In fact even with a 30 x loupe I could not find any internal inclusions. It is a Brilliant Cut and simply stunning both to the naked eye and under magnification. I estimate the colour to be H/I and clarity to be VVS
Condition Exceptional condition throughout. No thinning to the gold shank, no wear to the setting/mount front or back. This is certainly one of the best condition vintage rings I have examined.
All of my photos and videos are shot using natural light only. (Window light) This is to show the diamonds true natural colour. The use of electric lights in particular flash/strobe lights in photos tend to bleach diamonds an artificial "white" whilst also potentially hiding any eye visible inclusions. As always, the diamonds have been tested for authenticity with two electronic diamond testers.
