Art Deco Platinum "Step-Up" Diamond Engagement Ring 1.11 center
A gorgeous diamond engagement ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! Crafted in platinum, this stunning piece displays fabulous "step-up" shoulders lined with sparkling diamonds and an old European Cut diamond set at the center. The sparkling center stone weighs approximately 1.11ct and exhibits H color and VS2 clarity, catching the light brilliantly with every turn. The bead set stone rests within a box setting, and is surrounded by an incredible diamond lined border that creates a gorgeous beveled-edge appeal. The centerpiece is framed by three diamond encrusted "steps" that form the geometric shoulders, a perfect example of the Art Deco era appeal. The Single Cut accent diamonds weigh approximately 0.50ctw combined, giving an overall diamond carat weight of the piece of approximately 1.61ctw. Finishing the design is fine milgrain detail throughout, and a gorgeous wirework design below the mounting provides a wonderful feminine touch. A smoothly polished band graduates towards the back, and stamped inside of the shank is a "PLATINUM" purity mark. The ring was appraisal by an independent and accredited GIA-certified Graduate Gemologist in February 2020, and has a stated retail replacement value of $14,500.00. A timeless and classic beauty, this incredible Art Deco ring would make a very special engagement piece!
