Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1930

An incredible Art Deco period diamond solitaire ring dating from the 1930s. The main stone is an icy .36ct transitional cut diamond (F-VS1) set in an octagonal millegrain mount flanked by openworked chevron shoulders, each set with eight single cut diamonds and also finished in millegrain. The band is crafted in 18 karat yellow gold which contrasts beautifully with the platinum settings.

The transitional cut is something of a cult classic; a hybrid cut that sits somewhere between the old European cut (which came into popularity in the 19th Century) and the modern brilliant cut that's near ubiquitous today. They were experimental stones, produced between the 1920s and 1940s, and literally bridging the gap between old and modern cuts, so a great deal of variety can be found from stone to stone. They typically feature bigger tables, lower crowns, and smaller open culets than the old Euros that preceded them, meaning they have more of the brilliance and sparkle associated with modern stones, whilst keeping that unique/imperfect old cut charm.
