Here is a truly magnificent and very unique handmade reproduction engagement ring set with antique diamonds. Today rings can be made in two ways - either mass produced cast made using a wax carving either carved by hand or CAD designed, or hand made. The advantage of a ring that has been hand made is in the quality and detail. Not only is the gold or platinum stronger as there is no air bubbles or porosity often found in cast made rings, but the detail that can be achieved can be breathtaking. With this ring, not only was it handmade to an extremely high standard, but it was made using techniques employed by jewellers over 100 years ago. Sitting proudly in the centre is a vibrant antique European cut diamond that measures 0.57 carats and is H in colour and Si in clarity and has the unique charm and character of being a diamond that was cut by hand over 100 years ago. The side diamonds are the early single cut diamonds and total 0.13 carats and were millgrain set which can be seen in the elegant crimping along the setting, which was a popular technique years ago. Then there is the 16 carat gold and platinum that this ring was made from. The story of how we came about our own 16 carat gold is published here and well worth a read: https://www.kalmarantiques.com.au/articles/our-own-16-carat-rose-gold/ Platinum is such a wonderful pure precious metal that goes so well with the very soft rose colour from our 16 carat gold, creating such a unique and special ring.

Here is a very beautiful antique style 3 stone diamond engagement ring that has been made by one of our jewellers in an exact style of an original Art Deco diamond engagement ring and set with three lovely antique cut diamonds. This ring is an exact copy of an original antique one and not only has all the detail but also genuine antique diamonds. Jewellery today is often cast made where the pieces are mass produced and although this has the advantage of bringing the cost down to make a ring, however the quality in the fine detail will not be there and there is a chance that the metal has porosity which are minute air bubbles in the metal causing weakness, so a hand made ring has so many more advantages. And this ring was not just entirely hand made, but made in platinum which is not just the purest of all the precious metals used in jewellery, but also allows the fine detail that can be seen on the side be made all the while retaining the strength for the diamonds. In total there are three lovely European cut diamonds which have the same 58 facets as today's modern round brilliant cut diamond, but with slightly different angles and the centre diamond measures 0.91 carats and the diamonds on each side measures 0.56 carats and 0.52 carats. These diamonds are G to H in colour and VS in clarity meaning that they are in the white range of colour and are nice and clean with no eye visible inclusions. And of course they have the added charm of being genuine antique European cut diamonds that were cut by hand over 100 years ago and are being used to bring a new ring to life. When you look at the detail on the sides, set among the beautiful scroll work is a single cut diamond to add to the charm and character and is exactly as the original ring had. Then to complete the perfection, the sides have the most beautiful detail and craftsmanship and from the top measures 17mm from left to right by 6.8mm wide. This is such a beautiful diamond engagement ring that has the past and the present combined in one beautiful ring. Stock# ES6925 $Sold.

And then on each side is a small diamond just to add that extra sparkle amongst the detail on the band and these diamonds total 0.02 carats and from where the engraving starts on one side across to the other, this distance measures 18.1mm by 7mm wide at the centre.
