One of the joys of being someone who deals in vintage and antique jewelry is finding that one elusive treasure. That amazing jewel which is like no other you’ve come across before. When it’s something as beautiful and rare as this ring, it just makes you weak in the knees.
This fantastic Art Deco French cut diamond eternity band just wasn’t a ring that I could walk away from, I absolutely had to have it. The beautifully hand crafted platinum band is set with 23 diamonds which measure about 3x3x2.4 mm each and weigh about .15 carats each for a total diamond weight of about 3.5 carats. The stones display the cross and open cutlet of wonderful, early French cuts and are nice, white and clean stones. The ring measures 3.6 mm north to south and sits 2.5 mm off the finger, it is a size 6.5. The edges of this ring are richly engraved with swirling details. The inside of the band is marked ‘P950’ for the platinum content. This hand crafted ring was made around 1920, it weighs 4.7 grams.
For an engagement ring she’ll never tire of, or a wedding ring that will be a solitaires best friend, alone or stacked, this ring is a once in a lifetime beauty.
My Appraiser Writes::
"One lady's hand assembled textured & polished, hand engraved platinum, diamond eternity band. The band is a size 6.5, is 2.40mm thick and measures approximately tapering to 3.60mm in width by 21.90mm in diameter and weighs a total of 4.70 grams. Stamped "P950". In excellent condition. A hand engraved scrollwork design decorates both sides of the band. The square cut Diamonds have small but visible culets under magnification. The Diamonds have fewer facets than the more modern princess cut, however the princess cut formula was utilized in the weight calculation.
