Edwardian Platinum & Gold Five Diamond Ring
This ring is particularly special because it was made nearing the end of the Edwardian period just as Art Deco designs were starting to take shape in the fashion world. It has all the elegance and simplicity of Edwardian design but the geometric and straight lines of the Arc Deco movement.
The head of the ring has five fiery diamonds set into platinum in a classic art deco step-down shoulder design. The central diamond has a 4 claw open-back setting with the other four diamonds set into box settings. The metalwork, style of setting and cut of the stones gives the illusion the gemstones are larger than they are.
It is a great shape for stacking alongside all your other favourites and equally a perfect gift for that someone special in your life - an anniversary, birthday or a just because present!
Excellent Condition - Even though this ring is over 100 years old it is in wonderful condition. Ring has no only microscopic wear and the stones have no chips or cracks. The hallmarks are still fully visible. All of the diamonds are bright and clear with gorgeous sparkle. The band is thick and strong.
It is also recommended the ring be removed when undertaking physical activity which may damage the metal - cleaning, working out or moving heavy items. As with all gold/diamond jewellery it is also recommended the ring be kept away from chemicals such as chlorine, cosmetics, cleaning solutions.
The ring has been inspected by a professional goldsmith in the famous Hatton Garden jewellery quarter in London, England.
