ABOUT THIS RING

A splendid and sparkling original early-Art Deco engagement ring, artfully handcrafted in platinum - circa 1920s. The dazzling and highly distinctive vintage jewel stars a gorgeous European-cut diamond weighing just six points shy of one-and-a-half carats, accompanied by a GIA Diamond Grading Report stating: J color - VS1 clarity. The stone is embraced by four curved prongs which emerge from a fanciful, diamond-set, circular frame. The shoulders of the ring are adorned with a decorative openwork design leading to a tapered ring shank graced with a neo-classically inspired embossed pattern. A truly stunning and timeless treasure. Engraved inside shank 'Ed to Elsie Xmas' (the date was presumably lost during a subsequent sizing).

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
