For your left ring finger or any other! Vintage and antique diamonds.
I adore the openwork on this .60 carat Art Deco platinum and diamond engagement ring. This ring was made in the 1920’s-1930’s. The central diamond is accentuated by a straight baguette diamond set in a bullet shape setting and is outlined in a gracefully scalloped diamond-set frame. Hand engraving at the top of the shank provides a final, lovely detail. I’d love to see this on a finger (I volunteer my own).
This lovely .83 carat vintage diamond engagement ring was made in the 1940’s. The sparkling round diamond is highlighted on each side with a charming trefoil leaf motif set with tiny, twinkling, single-cut antique diamonds.
More of a right-hander than a typical engagement ring, this leafy Edwardian twin-stone diamond ring is exceptional. This ring, crafted in platinum over gold, dates back the very end the nineteenth century. It features a matched pair of old mine-cut diamonds weighing .45 carats set diagonally among a leafy motif shimmering with tiny rose cut diamonds.
This mid-century 2.01 carat diamond engagement ring is bold and glamorous. The diamond is embraced by split shoulders set with long, slender baguette cut diamonds punctuated with a round brilliant cut on either side. I do love a split shoulder.
This .83 carat Edwardian diamond engagement ring is so curvacous and unique. The .83 carat old Eurpean-cut diamond is set in platinum and surrounded by beautiful openwork and four tiny twinkling old mine diamonds. I think this one is really dainty and beautiful. (Very similar to my engagement ring!)
These rings have all been sold by Lang Antiques, I found them in the Archive. I’m sorry to break your heart by showing you rings that already belong to people, but even sold rings are worth admiring.
