This ring is striking. Made out of 18K solid gold and platinum, it is massive but, yet, feels comfortable on the finger. Its elevated high relief dome with beads and buttresses is supporting an absolutely stunning brilliant cut diamond weighing approximately 0.25ct. Color and clarity have reached perfection in the hands of the stone cutter (H-VVS1). This is a glamorous cocktail ring from the Retro period. Its architecture is a three dimensional work of art, sitting up a dramatic 12mm off the finger. Due to its small size, it can adequately be worn on a small finger. This ring is an invitation to boldness!
