Art Deco 1.52 Carat Diamond and Sapphire* Ring - GIA
ABOUT THIS RING
Most diamonds gather 'birthmarks' on their journey from the depths of the earth to its surface, inclusions, and elements that distinguish the extraordinary stones one from another. The glorious 1.52 carat old mine-cut diamond that casts its jubilant light atop this Art Deco jewel (circa 1920s-30s) is imbued with a warm light yellow hue created by the inclusion of nitrogen in its formation. Bright and beautiful, the stone rests in an octagonal milgrain-edged setting accented all around by starburst rays of midnight-blue triangle-cut synthetic sapphires*. An intricate side gallery--fancifully pierced and set with diamonds--leads to diamond-set engraved shoulders, pierced to create a small flower-like design. Magnificent! Total diamond weight, 1.70 carats. GIA Grading Report available stating: U,V color - VS2 clarity. *Original to the piece and the period, synthetic sapphires were used for their flawless clarity and color consistency. Condition note: synthetic sapphires show some wear commensurate with the age of the piece.
