I couldn’t fit all of the pretties into my first vintage/antique diamond ring roundup, so here are more!
This circular antique diamond ring is just so cool. From the first decade of the 1900s, this ring is made of platinum over gold. This beauty showcases five scintillating antique old mine-cut diamonds – the central diamond weighing a half-carat – presented atop glittering concentric circles. Tiny diamonds on the shoulders complete this festival of sparkle.
This lovely little .94 carat platinum and diamond engagement ring comes from the early-nineteenth century and features elements of both Edwardian and Art Deco periods. The central diamond rests in distinctive, soft shouldered, octagonal setting supported by slightly tapered diamond-set shoulders. I just adore the look of the tapered shoulders – I think it lends a beautiful delicacy to this antique diamond ring.
I really enjoy this sweet little double knot vintage diamond ring. The ring is 10 karat rose gold, with a small Swiss cut diamond in the center.
I think this 1.00 carat antique diamond ring is stunning. I bet this would catch light really wonderfully. The central 1.00 carat cushion-cut is flanked on each side by a flash of custom-cut tapered French-cut diamonds. The central cushion and French-cut diamonds are, in turn, outlined by a glistening row of small old mine-cut diamonds.
This .51 carat early Art Deco diamond engagement ring has some of the most amazing filigree I’ve ever seen. It’s from the late ‘teens – early 1920s. The central stone is in a hexagonal setting enhanced with fine zig-zag platinum wire work. Each shoulder is adorned with three old-mine cut diamonds and the gallery exhibits a variant of a classic Greek key pattern.
