Hand Engraved Art Deco Ring
With an eye for detail, hand engraving and pierced open 18k yellow gold work place this sweet Art Deco treat of a diamond ring in a whole different category. A white gold bezel of 18k nestles an old European cut diamond of about .15 points (H-I color, SI1 clarity). The glittering white diamond against a white gold setting gives the stone much more visual impact than its actual carat weight.
The lovely yellow gold mount has been carefully crafted with a hand engraved pierced under gallery and shoulders appointed with hand decoration within a cartouche. A smooth and silken yellow gold band completes the look of this Art Deco ring.
Measurements: 7/32 of an inch (0.6 cm) north and south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) off the finger. This ring has a weight of 1.6 grams (1.0 dwt).
Ring Size: 7-3/4 US (UK P; Euro 18, 57 mm) and can be easily sized to accommodate any hand.
Condition: Very good; a bit of light wear and softening to some side and shank detail but still clear.
Date: Circa 1920
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.
