A lovely diamond engagement ring from the early 1940s! This diamond, set in 14 karat white gold, is flanked by engraved shoulders with sweet butterfly motifs! Look at the details! The engraving and carvings on the shoulders really make this piece special!

The center diamond is set in what the industry calls an illusion head. This means that the head (or cup that the diamond sits in) is square in shape. The shape of the head gives the impression that a round diamond is square. The metalwork around the diamond also gives the "illusion" that the diamond is larger than it actually is. These are great features because one can have the look of a princess cut diamond with the light refraction of a round brilliant (rounds are the cut that has the most optimal refraction). The illusion head allows the wearer to have the best light refraction with the look they want!
