Vintage French Art Deco Diamond Ring with 1.8ctw in 18k White Gold, for a Man or a Woman

One of the things I love about the business I’m in is the fact that it tends to be such a family business. My suppliers have become my very good friends, and I love watching their children grow up and that some of them eventually decide to join the family business. I bought this fabulous French diamond ring from a a wonderful young woman who I’ve know since she was just a wee lassie. I’ve enjoyed watching her grow and flourish, watching her sense of style develop. It’s truly magnificent!

This ring has several of the things I love in a great jewel, a collision of styles, and a sort of unisex appeal that would make this a fabulous ring for either a man or a woman. The top and bottom sides are deeply engraved with a scrolling motif reminiscent of Victorian rings, but the shoulders and face have a squared off design that is oh, so Art Deco. The diamonds are super lively and it would make an excellent engagement ring, the weight and feel are luxuriously heavy and solid. Hand crafted around 1925, this ring is done in 18 karat white gold and is set with 7 diamonds. The center stone has a marvelous and unusual cut, it’s straight on the sides and oval at the top and bottom with an open culet at the back, the stone measures 5.7x5.3x3.9 mm and weighs approximately .8 carats, the two side stones are Old European cuts and weight in at .48 and .53 carats each, for a total weight of about 1.8 carats. There are four rose cut diamonds set around the middle stone. The ring is marked on the back of the shank with a French hallmark which is well rubbed, but seems to be an eagles head mark. The overall measurements on this ring are 9.3 mm north to south and 17 mm across, it sits 4.3 mm off the finger, the bezel set stones give it a great low profile. It narrows to 4 mm at the back of the band and weighs 9.8 grams. This ring is size 8.5 and could be re-sized to suit.
