This is an exquisite example of Art Deco 1.26 carat Old European cut diamond jewelry in its timeless 3 stone setting. If you adore Old European cut diamonds, you will be astounded the way the light bounces off the table and dances through the facets, usually by candlelight as women danced the night away. Why is it Old European diamonds are causing quite a stir today? What makes them so special & makes brides love them so? Jewelers from the first part of the twentieth century knew how to cut a diamond to enhance a lady's intricate detail on her gorgeous, detail-filled dress with its ribbons, swags, bows, and floral design. The proportions of the stone were worked according to the light falling directly down on the stone through the crown, hitting the cutlet, the bottom most facet, and popping out of the stone in a shower of rainbow colors, much like the prisms of chandelier crystals that were so popular in the Art Deco period sending rainbows of light around a grand ballroom......lovely! This ring has been treasured across the decades and now you can treasure it across the decades forever! I hope you love it as much as I do.
There are three pong set diamonds, two Old European cut diamonds, J/K in color, SI1-I1 in clarity, each weighing 40/100 to 41/100 of a carat, with a good cut, a slight bit of wear on one of the stones, typical of its age. The Old Mine Cut diamond weighs approximately 45/100 of a carat, SI1 in clarity, K/L in color. The total weight of the diamonds is 1.26 carats.
The diamonds are set in a stamped & tested 14K yellow & rose gold setting, meaning it has 58.3% fineness of pure gold. The ring measures 9/16ths of an inch from east to west, 3/16ths of an inch from top to bottom, & sits up 3/16ths of an inch. The ring is 7.25 in ring size, which can be easily sized up or down by a good jeweler. The total piece weighs 2.48 grams.
