Vintage 1940s .10 carat round brilliant cut two-tone 14K solitaire ring

An illusion set two-tone gold engagement ring from the early 1940s. This clever style of setting, where white gold or platinum was used to give the impression of larger diamonds, was popular in late 1930s- 1940s, when frugal post-WWII couples wanted beautiful things for a reasonable price. The ring is set with a .10 carat round brilliant cut center diamond. The diamond is set in 18K white gold at the petite head and the mounting is 14K yellow gold with "faux baguette" white gold shoulders. Pairs nicely with a variety of solitaire and mid-century wedding bands (see the last three photos!)
