Solid 18K gold and platinum Deco "bridge" ring, stamped old European cut diamond and red paste, Fine gold jewelry
FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!
This masterfully crafted Art Déco ring is made out of 18K solid gold and platinum. Although it is not a term often use in the US, it is often referred to as a "bridge" ring in jewelry parlance because, as often is the case with the geometry and straight lines of the Deco design, it bridges the two shoulders of the ring before ushering in a heavy and solid gold band. In fact, the ring is relatively heavy (6.1g) and has a substantial feel about it.
The face of the ring showcases an old European cut diamond of approximately 0.35ct set on platinum, squared bezel set, and flanked by two horizontal rows of bright red paste -- very typical of these 1930s ring. One of the red stone has a small chip off, but which is only visible with a 10X loupe, and does not detract from the wonderful appearance of this ring. The diamond is very clear and bright and of excellent quality, without inclusions (H-VVS2).
This beautiful ring bespeaks a period in the history of jewelry which is important and which, still to-day, can claim many followers. It is suitable for a man as well as for a woman and fits nicely on a little finger as well.
