This gorgeous vintage engagement ring is rendered in 14 karat white gold and features a dazzling diamond solitaire.
The diamond is approximately 1/3 ct and is just a lovely faceted cut stone.
This ring has the most intricate and romantic setting high on the shank and encircled in beautiful scroll detail in the mount. Big sigh.
It has classic late Deco design and is very elegant in its simplicity.
The first "betrothal" rings were worn in Ancient Rome, but really caught on in the Western world in the early 13th century.
Before the 20th century, the bride would sometimes receive a thimble as "betrothal" gift. We like this better.
WHO wants a thimble as an engagement token???? That is just sad, but luckily, things have changed!
This exquisite ring has been professionally tested and is positive for 14 karat white gold.
The diamond has a carat weight of approximately .30 and sparkles beautifully.
It shows a fair amount of inclusions but, remains in otherwise good condition. In spite of the inclusions, the color has great brilliance.
The diamond is encased in a tall filigreed prong-setting.
Each shoulder features a delicate pattern of hand-etched chevrons.
On the interior of the band, near the setting, you will find a beautifully hand-engraved inscription which reads "1923".
Despite expected surface wear, this lovely ring remains in very good vintage condition.
This sparkling beauty will make such a romantic gift. We love it; we know you will too!
