Near Perfection: Diamond Ring of 1.26 ct
Some diamond rings were just meant to shine…near perfection in the form of precious metal and carbon. This fantastic modern day setting of platinum shows off a top in the shape of a hexagon cradling an old mine cushion cut diamond of about 1.26 carats (color of I-J, clarity VS1). The entire setting is finely ornamented with eighteen (18) more diamonds—both brilliants and single cuts for an additional estimated .54 carats (F-G color, clarity VS2-SI1) bringing the total estimated diamond weight to 1.80 carats of brilliance. Gorgeous swirls, scrolls and geometric shapes of mille graining dance around the gallery as open work shoulders lead to a trellis of leaf designs enrobing the gently tapering shank.
Accompanied by gemological lab certificate valued at (see "More Details").
Measurements: 7/16 of an inch (1 cm) north to south on finger by 3/8 of an inch (0.9 cm) in width for diamond alone and rises ¼ of an inch (0.6 cm) off the finger. This ring has a weight of 5.0 grams (3.2 dwt).
Size: US 5-5/8 (UK K-1/2; Euro 16-1/4, 55 mm) and can be sized by our team of expert jewelers to fit most.
Date: Main diamond is early 20th century. The mount and accent diamonds are modern.
