Jewellery from the Art Deco period of the 1920's to the 1940's have remained so popular and sought after, and here i such a beautiful Art Deco diamond ring that is sure to always be admired.
Hand made in platinum in the 1930's, the design alone of this ring is so beautiful, and thanks to the soft curve of the top allows it to sit so comfortably on the finger
Sitting in the centre is one early brilliant cut diamond that measures 0.18 carats, with three single cut diamonds set on the left and right and ten along each edge. These diamonds total 0.32 carats, and all the diamonds have been beautifully millgrain set which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge of the setting. Millgrain setting was popular during the Art Deco period and adds that extra element of charm to the ring.
With a beautiful soft curve to the top of the ring, it measures 8.4mm wide at the centre by 17.7mm across and is so comfortable to wear all the time.
This is such a beautiful ring whose design has truly stood the test of time, and looks as beautiful today as when it was made and will always be admired each time that it is worn.

What are single cut diamonds?
These are small diamonds usually around 0.01 carats to 0.05 carats in size. They are often found on the shoulders of rings or surrounding a centre stone for example. While today modern technology will allow for a 0.01 carat diamond to have 58 facets and be a round brilliant cut diamond, single cut diamonds were used from the later part of the 19th Century up until around the 1930's-1940's. Commonly found with eight facets on the top (the crown) and eight facets on the bottom (the pavilion) these are sometimes found with total facets between 16 to 18.
