This is a stunning VS1 Tacori Art Deco diamond halo engagement ring, and I imagine Lady Mary and Lady Edith from Downton Abbey would adore it too! If you are looking for the perfect ring to take her breath away, look no farther. The setting, the beauty of the central diamond, the VS quality of all of the diamonds make this ring a very special ring. I rarely see such a "take your breath away" setting of diamonds set in gorgeous 18K white gold, with the trademark Tacori. If you are looking for a very "today" look circa 1920-1935, this may be your ring! Bookmark this page.....show him what you REALLY want!
There is one prong set Old European cut diamond set with 8 prongs, very fine VS1 in clarity, bright J in color, with a very good cut, weighing approximately 87/100 of a carat. Surrounding the central diamond are 24 prong set round brilliant cut diamonds, with an approximate weight of 12/100 of a carat, with a VS1-VS2 clarity, G/H in color, with a very good cut. The setting is both stamped & tested 18K white gold, a combination cast & assembled halo ring, with a Tacori trademark, meaning it has 75% fineness of pure gold. With an appraisal of $8200, this ring is well priced.
Under the open Tiffany style head of the ring, notice the gorgeous mill grained work underneath, with 6 bead set round brilliant cut diamonds which weigh approximately 04/100 of a carat, with VS1-VS2 clarity, G/H in color, with a very good cut. The sparkle of those tiny diamonds every time you move your finger totally bounce the light no matter which way your hand turns & is a very beautiful look! There is very lovely detail decorative work down the shoulders of the ring, and on both sides as well as the top of the shoulders under this cathedral shaped setting. The engraved half round shank measures 2.00 mm wide.
