Isn’t it great? It was made in 1915. I think the contrast of that 2.90 carat antique cushion-cut diamond with the delicately engraved platinum ring is wonderful. It has a gorgeous gallery, too.
It’s a little tricky to tell, but the filigree of the gallery actually forms a fleur-de-lys motif. And please note that that hand-engraving goes absolutely all around the ring.
The Lang Antiques’ description sums up this antique cushion-cut diamond engagement ring by saying, “Understated elegance par excellence.” 2.90 carats is a lot of sparkle power for “understated,” but I still think the phrase suits the design of the ring, if not the size of the diamond, perfectly.
