The Supreme Illusion - Rose Cut Diamond Ring

An no one will be the wiser that it is actually less than 1 carat as rose cuts are flat bottomed and thus all their attributes show where it counts - in the diameter! With a color of G-H and an SI1 clarity it actual size is approximately .88 carats. It is set closed backed and foiled for maximum pure radiance in a pure platinum mount.
Measurements: 1/2 of an inch (1.3 cm) north to south by ½ of an inch (1.3 cm) in width and rises ¼ of an inch (0.6 cm) off the finger. This ring has a weight of 3.0 grams (1.9 dwt).
Ring Size: US 6-1/4 (UK L-3/4; Euro 16-3/4, 53 mm) and can easily be sized.
Condition: Excellent; light wear overall as expected with age and use.
Date: Circa 1925
Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
