Platinum Art Deco Ring, I-22683

This classic Art Deco platinum ring, I-22683 features a bold and sparkly center Old European cut diamond, just shy of one full carat. Like many Old Euros, the diamond has a lightly golden tint that is enhanced by the fiery cut. Purchased from the estate of a jeweler, this piece is perfect for someone looking for an unusual vintage ring. The intricate hand engraving accents the blue and green baguettes- typically, the jewelers of the period most often used synthetic sapphires in expensive platinum diamond jewelry.


18K Gold Art Deco Ring, I-22270

18K Gold Art Deco Ring, I-22702

This regal 18k white gold hexagonal setting is pure Art Deco, hand fabricated for strength and durability. Set with a 1/4 ct. Old European cut, the ring is in perfect condition.


18K Gold Art Deco Filigree Ring, I-22701

18K Gold Art Deco Filigree Ring, I-22701

This delicate 18K white gold filigree style shows the other side of Art Deco. The open work is airy and delicate yet very strong because it’s die struck construction make the metal dense and hard. The 1/10 ct. Old Euro diamond is bright and sparkly. A perfect starter ring for engagement or promise.


14K & Platinum Edwardian Ring

Last but not least, just acquired, this sweet solitaire was created a bit earlier than the previous rings. Typical of the Edwardian period with a thin layer of white metal overlaid onto 14k yellow gold, it probably dates from ~ 1900-1920. We can’t test the beautifully hand engraved white metal directly but it’s probably platinum–typical technique of the period. The lively ~1/8 ct. Old Euro diamond is clean and white. Just precious!
