Art Deco .53 Carat Diamond and Sapphire Engagement Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
If you're looking for an engagement ring that's a standout in every way, consider this ravishing rarity. Exquisitely hand crafted in platinum over 18K yellow gold, the stunning jewel focuses on a sparkling and lively .53-carat European-cut diamond set in trapezoid-shaped prongs and a millegrain-edged octagonal bezel. The stone shines even brighter courtesy of its contrasting halo that glimmers with rich cobalt blue calibre sapphires rimmed in an 18K gold millegrain bezel. And it just gets better. Lovely laurel leaves, set with tiny rose-cut diamonds, form the shoulders that lead the size 5 1/4 ring shank, and a scrolled side gallery adds the finishing flourish to this delightfully distinctive ring. Circa 1930. Currently ring size 5 1/4. Total diamond weight - .58 carat, total sapphire weight - .60 carat.
