Platinum, Edwardian styling and twenty-one (21) diamonds with a total weight of 1.03 carats make for a fabulously luxurious look. Its meticulously crafted setting along with its engraved date of 1918, place this in the top of its class.
An old European cut diamond of .55 carats (I-J color; VS clarity) is set in a square platinum bezel accented at the corners with four (4) small old European cut diamonds. The manner in which the top cluster has been designed gives the visual illusion of a larger center diamond, and its diameter is that of a .70 carat!
Split trumpet shaped shoulders each utilize a double row of graduated in size old Europe cuts ranging in size from .04 to .01 carats. Mille grain work accents the platinum mounting as the sensuous pierced under-gallery spells out femininity plus. The mount is set with twenty (20) old European cut diamonds with a total weight of .48 carats (H-I color; VS2-SI1 clarity).
Lovely engraving appoints the tapering shank. To the interior a hand engraved phrase “J.M.L. 1918” commemorates the ring.
Historical Notes: On May 10,1872 Samuel Kind started a business in a little room on an upper floor at 241 Market Street. It soon blossomed into S. Kind & Sons, jewelers, diamond merchants and silversmiths and relocated to 110 Chestnut Street (at Broad) where it remained until 1965.
