Antique Diamond Engagement Ring 18k and Platinum Edwardian
For weeks she had waited for him to ask. She found the ring, a golden sparkling treasure, tucked inside one of his work shoes when she was organizing their closet. She thought he was going to ask her after dinner the next night as they sat by candlelight beneath the stars. He didn’t. She thought he was going to ask when they went hiking and the skies were blue and there wasn’t a soul around. He didn’t. She thought he was going to ask on her birthday last weekend, after bringing out the cake. He didn’t. She scrolled through her calendar on her phone, guessing which day it might be. That’s when he came up to her with a fresh mug of vanilla coffee in his hand. He sat it on the table between them, and that’s when he asked, right there, in the middle of the afternoon, during a light summer rain, at their maple wood dining table. The ring was better than she remembered, even though it was blurred by happy tears.
This antique diamond engagement ring was handcrafted around 1910, likely in France. There is an Old European cut diamond at the center, surrounded by 16 more smaller stones that encircle it and spread to the leaf-shaped shoulders. All of the stones are platinum set over 18 karat yellow gold. The center glittering diamond measures 5.3 x 5 x 4.1 mm and weighs approximately .7 carats. This ring is a size 8 and weighs 3.2 grams. It has been carefully acid tested. The ring face measures 10.4 x 17 and sits 5.6 mm off the finger.
There’s no need to be conventional when you’re clearly one of a kind. This charmer would be a beautiful engagement ring or anniversary gift. It’s unique, it’s classic, it’s an instant heirloom.
