When I was in New York a few weeks ago, I finally had the chance to visit a store I’ve been following online for quite some time: the illustrious FD Gallery. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I saw quite the selection of treasures while I was there. Today I want to spotlight one that is just too spectacular to simply post on Instagram and move on from: this magnificent 1950’s marquise cut diamond ring by Sterlé.
Look at it, all crisp angles and whirls of motion. The center stone is a beautiful behemoth: 4.72 carats of impeccably cut marquise-cut beauty. The stone is truly exceptional; it exhibits absolutely no bow-tie effect.
Generally I prefer a fatter marquise, but this sleek one seduced me with its crisp beauty.
My very favorite part – which I love even more than the small marquise stones on the sides and the stunning 4.72 carat center stone – is the perfect, diamond-set ribbonlike design of the shank, culminating in the perfect criss cross on the bottom. This kind of dynamic, static design that feels like it’s in motion is a signature look for Sterlé.
