Art Deco 1.39 Carat Diamond and Synthetic Sapphire Engagement Ring - GIA K SI2
ABOUT THIS RING
A beautiful, bright and shining European-cut diamond, weighing 1.39 carats, beams brilliantly from atop a particularly striking Art Deco engagement ring mounting, hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1920s-30s. The scintillating stone, accompanied by a GIA Diamond Grading Report stating: K color - SI2 clarity, is embellished on four sides by slender scissor-cut calibre synthetic* sapphires, and all around with tiny glittering single-cut diamonds accentuated by delicate milgraining and decorative piercing. And, for a finishing touch, the top half of the currently size 7 1/2 ring shank is hand engraved with a neoclassical acanthus leaf pattern. *Back in the day, circa 1920s-30s, due to their uniformity of color and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, besides the fact that the virtually undetectable differences are only discernible with a microscope.
