Art Deco Platinum & Diamond Illusion Solitaire Ring
The great depression meant that big flashy jewellery had to take a backseat to much more modest designs. This 1930s ring is the perfect example of an engagement ring designed to maximise the limited materials and means available at the time.
To maximise the modest central diamond, the metal edges of the setting have been cut and engraved into the metal to create an illusion of a much bigger stone.
The ring is incredibly sleek and elegant in it's design. The head of the ring sits in a raised setting ensuring the diamond benefits from as much light as possible strengthening its brilliance.
Despite it's raised profile it is extremely comfortable to wear and sits flush against the finger. This means it can easily be worn everyday without worrying it will catch on your clothes etc. Its straight design also makes it perfect for stacking with other rings.
The platinum illusion engraved shoulders are studded with an additional two diamonds on each side leading onto to a buttery gold ring shank
