Lovely European Cut Diamond in Platinum 1950's Engagement Setting

YMYQ2Q

Description

Here we have a classic, Retro Era diamond engagement ring crafted of luxurious, polished platinum. The center diamond is protected by triple point, 'picture corner' prongs, a decorative and extremely wearable style. Steps of diamonds continue the sparkle down the shoulders, with a perfect proportion and balance.

The center diamond is simply beautiful! Filled with glitter, the size provides an elegant, but not ostentatious statement. Excellent color and clarity provide value, while the precise cutting and polish bring bring into play luxurious gleams of full spectrum light. This lovely stone is an old, European cut diamond.

European Cut diamonds bridge the gap between the more amateurish cuts of the early Victorian Era, such as the Rose Cuts and Old Mine Cuts, and brings the art of gem cutting into the modern, post industrialized age,

Diamonds began to be cut in the European fashion in the late 1800 s, at the very end of the Victorian period, through the Edwardian era and well into the Art Nouveau surge of the early 1900 s. Unlike the more sketched in lines of the Old Mine cut stones, these Euro cuts follow a stricter template. While the culet remains open at the base of the diamond, it is shaped in a more distinct circle, with an even circumference all the way around. As the precursor to what would become the modern brilliant cut diamonds, Euro cuts feature more facets than the older cutting styles. A high crown creates a glowing shine of pure light within these antique diamonds, as opposed to the glittering effect of micro-faceted, modern cut diamonds.

Absolutely classic, this vintage ring is the very definition of Retro Era bridal pieces, and will be a sophisticated, timeless piece to wear for decades to come.
