ANTIQUE ART DECO 0.91 CARAT OLD MINE CUT DIAMOND PLATINUM SOLITAIRE RING
This beautiful antique piece was handcrafted sometime during the Art Deco design period (1920-1940). The platinum setting is a classically simple solitaire style with two baguette cut diamond accents. The center diamond is an Old Mine cut measuring approximately 0.91 carats. Old Mine cut diamonds were skillfully cut and crafted by hand to scintillate in soft candlelight and gas light light sources. They have a hand crafted unique shape and brilliance. Most Old Mine cut diamonds are cushion shaped but this particular diamond is perhaps more similar in appearance to an Asscher or princess cut; more compact and squared in appearance than a cushion cut. The center diamond grades approximately E in color and I1 in clarity. This timeless antique piece is simply elegant and would pair beautifully with platinum, diamond or gold bands. This ring is currently a size 5 & 1/4.
