Jewellery from the Art Deco period of the 1920's to the 1940's often took a traditional design and made it more unique such as this Art Deco diamond cluster ring that was made in the 1920's.
Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold and platinum, making this ring more unique is that it is set with not one but two rows of single cut diamonds surrounding a central single cut diamond. Not only are there the 19 diamonds on the top, but on each shoulder there are another two single cut diamonds that brings the total diamond weight to 0.23 carats.
The cluster section measures 9.8mm in diameter by 17.5mm across from where the shoulder diamonds start on each side, and this ring sits nice and flat on the finger making it so comfortable to wear all the time day or night.
This is a wonderful example of an Art Deco ring that will so easily suit any finger including making a beautiful engagement ring.

What is a single cut diamond?
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.
