This gorgeous prong set Old European Cut diamond in the center of this beautiful engagement, wedding, or birthstone ring is absolutely exquisite. If you love all things vintage, this may be your ring! Old European Cut diamonds were the star of Art Deco jewelry design and were loved by brides during that period. The Old European Cut is almost a transition from old Mine Cut diamonds to the modern brilliant cuts we see today. Hand cutting of these lovely diamonds was the predominant method used, so facets are individually shaped and not the precise symmetry of diamonds we see today. These differences make each stone unique and make them prized by those who love all things vintage, adding a certain charm which mass produced cuts of today will never equal. This lovely Old European cut diamond is definitely one of a kind treasure. I hope you love it as much as I do!
This fine prong set diamond weighs approximately 48/100 of a carat, has a lovely near colorless G color, with a beautiful SI1 clarity. Surrounding the center stone are 12 more prong set diamonds, weighing approximately 10/100 of a carat, with a beautiful H color and SI2 clarity. The total weight of the diamonds is 58/100 of a carat. The diamond is set in a beautiful stamped 14K white gold setting, meaning it has 58.3% fineness of pure gold. Notice the lovely white gold decorative work down the shoulders of the ring, on the band, and on the sides of the ring......just beautiful! I love the floral decorations, the beadwork, the mill grained trim. The ring measures 3/4 of an inch from east to west, 5/16ths of an inch from top to bottom, and sits up 1/4 of an inch from the finger. Ring size 7, the ring can be easily sized up or down by a good jeweler.
