Antique Art Deco 1.55 carat Transitional Cut diamond platinum engagement ring
This ring will sweep you off your feet! A 1.55 carat old-style circular cut diamond perched in a substantial, hand engraved platinum mounting. This Late Edwardian-Early Art Deco (ca. 1910s-1920s) ring displays everything we cherish about antique bridal pieces, beginning with the exquisite and romantic diamond.
Transitional Cut diamonds are diamonds that were cut in the early 20th century when lapidary techniques were shifting from Old European to what we now call the modern round brilliant. As with anything, this change in cutting style did not happen overnight: diamond cutters produced cuts that were on a spectrum between Old European Cuts and Modern Round Brilliants for many years, giving us a marvelous category of gemstone that has attributes of the old and new word techniques.
This stone has a lovely spread (7.36-7.46mm) and a hint of color, like a fine champagne. It offers up a spirited and luxurious play of light, twinkling and golden. It has a small table and open culet, both attributes of Old Euros, but other proportions closer to modern brilliant cuts. The platinum mounting rivals the diamond for attention: Hand engraved orange blossoms up the shank and shoulders, two further Old European diamonds set in shapely recesses, and blossoms and greenery engraved to wrap around and under the head . . . we are smitten, and we think you will be, too.
