2.38 CARAT OLD MINE CUT DIAMOND AND CUSTOM CUT SAPPHIRE PLATINUM RING
This jaw dropping diamond and sapphire ring features an antique diamond in an exquisite custom made setting with specialty cut sapphires and tiny sparkling diamond accents. The center diamond is an Old Mine cut and measures approximately 2.38 carats. Old Mine cut diamonds are the predecessor to Old European cut diamonds and were popular during the Victorian design period (1840-1900). Old Mine cut diamonds were cut and shaped by hand using another diamond amongst other cutter’s tools. Old Mine cut diamonds were crafted specifically to scintillate in candlelight or gas flame light sources, giving them a truly beautiful and unique contrast. This 2.38 carat diamond grades K in color and SI1 in clarity. The platinum setting, though clearly inspired by the Art Deco design period, is a modern custom design and is of exceptional quality. The setting features 20 French and custom cut sapphires. The sapphires are richly hued and beautifully set, perfectly flush. The platinum setting features 8 sparkling diamond accents, fine milgrain throughout, and an intricate filigree gallery. The stunning Old Mine cut diamond often resembles a modern cushion cut upon first glance. Sapphires were often used in antique pieces to represent loyalty, fidelity, and trust; making this a wonderful choice for an exceptionally unique engagement ring. This ring was crafted using antique design inspirations and has a truly timeless quality. It is without a doubt an heirloom piece meant to last a lifetime and then some. This ring is currently a size 7 & 1/2.
