Art Nouveau Diamond Pearl Bypass Ring

I imagine Raoul and Josephine wed on December 29, nearly a century ago. She was in ivory, a dress with a drop waist and draped sleeves. Around her neck and on her finger were pearls, the symbol of purity and innocence. He waited for her near the altar, in his club collar and single breasted dress jacket, with a smile as bright as summer on his face. Snowflakes fell gracefully to the ground outside the church with stained glass windows. They began their life together with the power of pearls, and that’s enough for me to know that they surely lived happily ever after.  

This lovely Art Nouveau diamond and pearl ring was handcrafted in England. Each of the 18 diamonds and the beautiful center pearl are set in platinum, while the shank is made in 18 karat gold. The shiny center pearl is full and round, measuring 6 x 6.1 x 6 mm. It’s creamy white with orange undertones. The diamonds are an array of 14 graduated rose cuts, and four Old European cuts. They form a beautiful swooping swirling design around the center pearl. The two largest diamonds measure 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.6 mm (.25 carats) and 3.6 x 3.6 x 2.5 mm .20 carats). The face measures 13 x 20.2 x 8 mm. This ring is a size 7 and weighs 4.4 grams. It has been professionally acid tested. It bears an inscription that, in cursive, reads, “Raoul a Josephine 29.12.23”, I suspect that this ring was made a decade or so before it was inscribed. 

Be the romantic, surprise her at breakfast with a piece of history, filled with love, and beauty.
