This ring will so easily look so beautiful on its own, or worn as a wedding ring sitting next to an engagement ring, and has all the charm of the wonderful Art Deco era in which it was made.
Hand made in 18 carat white gold in the 1930's, in total there are ten single cut diamonds that total 0.40 carats and sparkle so well, and are highlighted by the millgrain pattern along each side which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge of the setting which was popular during the Art Deco period.
With the sides of the ring also beautifully hand engraved, the ring measures 3mm wide at top and tapers down to 2.0mm wide at the back back.
Having the diamonds go just half way around the band will allow this ring to also be resized a few sizes of needed.

What are single cut diamonds?
These are small diamonds usually around 0.01 carats to 0.05 carats and are often found on the shoulders of rings. 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.
In recent years there has been such a resurgence for genuine antique cut diamonds. This is seen especially for engagement rings as many people realise that there is such a charm and character about antique cut diamonds.
What is an eternity ring?
An eternity ring is one where the diamonds go all around the ring. This is a design that works so well when it is worn on its own, or to compliment another ring such as an engagement ring. Very popular during the Art Deco era of the 1920's, they are just as popular today.
