Minarets of Lace - Diamond Engagement Ring
America had quite the reputation for the design and manufacturer of jewelry during the Art Deco era. These jewelers took delight in inventing, creating and fabricating refreshingly different mounts for diamond set rings.
No question that this circa 1920 Art Deco ring supports that contention to a fault. The superb filigree and design work in this 18k white gold ring is apparent. The mount is fashioned in such a manner as to maximize the visual impact of the central old European cut diamond of about .15 carats (color H-I; clarity VS2-SI1) and its two single cut side accent diamonds.
Every angle, side and profile view reflects the intricate pierced and open work and the attention to fine details placing this ring apart from the rest. The photographs do not do justice to this jewel of an Art Deco ring.
Measurements: 5/16 of an inch (0.7 cm) in width north to south on the hand and rises 5/16 of an inch (0.8 cm) off the finger. This Art Deco ring has a weight of 2.5 grams (1.6 dwt).
Ring Size: US 5-5/8 (UK K-1/2; Euro 16.25, 51 mm) and can be easily sized to fit most any hand.
