Here is a ring that was so beautifully hand made in the Art Deco era of the 1920's in such an elegant design that this will make the perfect engagement ring that will always be loved and cherished.
Made entirely in platinum, the proportions of this ring make it sit perfect on the finger and highlight the beautiful diamonds set into the ring.
Sitting proud in the centre is a European cut diamond that measures 1.68 carats and has such a wonderful sparkle to it combined with all the charm and character of being cut over a century ago. The diamond is VS1 in clarity and L in colour, however don't think for a moment that this diamond looks yellow, as it faces up so beautifully and so much whiter than people would imagine.
Set on each side is a baguette cut diamond that highlights the centre diamond and aesthetics of the ring perfectly. These diamonds total 0.10 carats and from left to right the ring measures 14.5mm across.
This is a truly magnificent example of a genuine Art Deco diamond engagement ring that is as elegant and beautiful today as when it was made a century ago.

What is a European cut diamond?
During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus. This was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. These stones can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone.
The culets became smaller, as it was realised that light could leak out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury, with further modifications through the century. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
