Way back in the 1930s Larry presented this sparkling jewel to Edith. How do we know? It's engraved inside the platinum ring shank: "Larry to Edith"! (It can be removed if you wish, but we liked it.) The stunningly simple ring stars an icy-white, virtually flawless, European-cut diamond, weighing .74 carat, accompanied by a GIA Diamond Grading Report stating: G color - VVS1 clarity. The scintillating stone shines solo with just a delicate coin-edge milgraining adorning the upper ring shank. Understated elegance par excellence. Currently ring size 4 1/2. In our opinion the diamond is a European-cut however the GIA's definition of European-cut is narrower so they call the diamond round brilliant. An evolution of the brilliant cut can be found here: http://university.langantiques.com/index.php/Brilliant_Cut

Center Diamond details
Round Brilliant Cut *Lang determines cut/shape based on visual appearance and knowledge of antique cuts. The GIA laboratory uses mathematical parameters to determine the cut/shape for their reports which can result in differences between Lang and GIA cut/shapes designations.
Carat Weight:
0.74 carat Because mountings prohibit full and accurate observation of gem quality and weight, all data pertaining to mounted gems can be considered as approximate unless accompanied by an independent laboratory certificate (AGL, EGL, GIA). Unless otherwise stated, all colored stones and pearls are assumed to be subject to a relatively stable and possibly undetected color and/or clarity enhancement.

How to Pair Your Wedding Band

You found your ideal, beautiful, one-of-a-kind antique or vintage engagement ring… and then realized that you need a wedding band to go with it. Pairing the two can be tricky, since vintage engagement rings rarely come with matching bands, and many modern bands don’t accommodate vintage shapes and designs. So we created a line of vintage-style wedding bands, modeled after original pieces from our collection.

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

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.
