This very beautiful and elegant diamond halo ring was hand made in 18 carat white gold and platinum in the romantic Art Deco period of the 1930's and is such a classic design that will suit any finger and occasion, including making a wonderful engagement ring.
Sitting proudly in the centre is one European cut diamond that weighs 0.40 carats and is surrounded by eight more European cut diamonds that add a further 1.12 carats to the diamond weight, guaranteeing a wonderful sparkle that will make sure that it is noticed each time that it is worn.
With the top measuring 13.5mm in diameter, this is a ring that has not only lasted the test of time with its design, but will continue to always look amazing on any finger.
Art Deco halo ring
Art Deco halo ring hand made in 18 carat white gold and platinum. This ring was made in the 1930's and is set with antique European cut diamonds.
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.
