Old cut diamonds can be dangerous. The more of them you see, the more of them you desire to own! Whereas modern brilliant cut diamonds can be nice and sparkly, old European cuts like these are more like individual works of art. Hand cut by craftsmen who spent decades learning their craft. These cutters used no computers, no lasers; they used their eyes, their experience and their hands, often cutting with tools they had made themselves. The result is a diamond with a uniqueness of character that simply cannot be found in today's modern cut stones. This fabulous ring was made in about 1910 and showcases a mine cut diamond with large cut facets that cause it to flash with slow and stunning sparks of colorful fire.
Fully hand crafted in platinum and set with an array of fiery diamonds, this beautiful ring would make an excellent engagement ring. The center stone measures 4.5x2.99 mm and weighs approximately .38 carats, it is a I color, SI2 stone, and is surround by 8 smaller diamonds which together add up to .61 carats (F-H color, VS1-Si1 clarity). This ring may well be American in origin as the halo of diamonds contains early American cut brilliant stones. The total diamond weight is .99 carats and the ring is marked with ‘PLAT’ fro platinum. The ring face measures 10.4 mm north to south and across and sits 5.1 mm off the finger, it is a size 7.25 and could be re-sized to suit, it weighs 2.2 grams.
This ring has been appraised by a GIA Master Gemologist and comes with an appraisal which shows a retail value of $4,200.
