Story

Resonating with power, a ring that is chosen to mark an engagement holds potent meaning. No one really knows how a diamond set in a ring came to represent the betrothal of one individual to another. We do know that diamonds were not readily available until the South African diamond strikes during the later 1800s.

Perhaps the idea of the previous scarcity of the diamond was thought to be appropriate. No matter as the diamond engagement ring has become established as the icon for an impending marriage in the western culture.

This artful solitaire of 14k white gold highlights a old European cut diamond of an estimated .15 carats (I-J color; SI1 clarity). Being set within a white gold bezel gives the diamond a visual appearance of a larger gem than its actual carat weight dictates. The curvilinear forms of the mounting create a series of lovely height variations throughout while the ring still maintains its lower profile on the finger. Pierced open work shoulders provide a delicate feminine touch to the ring.

Date: Circa 1930.
