Want to find the hallmark on a French ring? Look at the very back of the shank (band). For this ring, a tiny eagle's head mark can be discerned (magnification is needed to see its details).
In two colors of 18k gold, both yellow and white, a one-of-a-kind solitaire ring is much more than the sum of its parts. Its refinement reads clearly in all its breathtaking details.
The central diamond of .12 carats (color H-I, clarity VS2) rests on a buttercup white gold nest. Surrounding it are rays of highly polished gold that are set at an angle just as flower petals arc downward. As you tilt and turn the ring, the light catches various areas of the surfaces forming "moving" highlights.
In four parts, the shoulders utilize twisted gold wire and open areas that then merge into a gently tapered single shank. It's an absolutely mesmerizing design, whether worn as an everyday ring, an engagement ring or a special occasion favorite.
