Hand Chased Diamond & Gold Dinner Ring
The ring is crafted in 14ct yellow and white gold with a single old brilliant cut diamond set in its center. The domed gold panel has been hand engraved and carefully pierced in a geometric style accented in millegrain beading. The design of shoulders to the ring in typical art deco step style means the ring sits flush to the finger so there is no risk of it catching on clothing. It is a very comfortable ring to wear.
This ring has been well loved over the past 100 years. There is some rubbing to the metals however the designs/engraving/piercing work is still completely sharp and crisp with no worn "spots". The shank is in excellent condition - being very thick and sturdy. This ring is one of the most interesting we've had. It has clearly been crafted in both yellow and white gold however, it would appear that some of the yellow gold has rubbed off over time leaving the white gold underlay. It provides a beautiful contrast and is only visible when searching with a loupe.
The ring has been inspected by a professional Goldsmith in the famous Hatton Garden Jewellery quarter in London, England. They have confirmed the materials used in the ring are authentic.
