Vintage 1950s mid-century 1 carat Old European Cut diamond solitaire

A stunning 1 carat Old European Cut diamond solitaire in a smart setting from the 1950s. The diamond pre-dates the mounting by a few decades, bearing the signature marks of an "Old Euro" diamond and absolutely dazzling with an unhurried, sensual sparkle. The diamond is elevated in a square basket setting with classic fishtail corner prongs and framed by a pair of single cut diamonds. The basket has sweeping, low-cut sides that allow for a beautiful view of the diamond from every angle. Subtle knife-edge shoulders and modeled in 18K white gold. This would pair beautifully with a variety of wedding bands.
