Edwardian 1.2ct Old Euro Diamond 5-Stone Ring

$2,400.00


Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1910

This particularly lovely five-stone diamond ring was made on the Edwardian era at the very beginning of the 20th Century. The old cut stones have been set in platinum bezels with fine millegrain detailing all around. Since platinum had only recently started being used by jewellers (on account of the high temperatures required to work the metal) settings like these were ultra modern, and highly sought after. The cool white metal was seen to complement and enhance the colour and brilliance of the diamonds, providing an elegant frame that didn't outshine the beauty of the stones themselves, and also provided a striking colour contrast with the 18 karat yellow gold traditionally used to form the band.

This ring is home to around 1.2 carats of old European cut diamonds, and dates from circa 1910.
