Art Deco Gold & Platinum Illusion Solitaire Ring
Engage in Illusion
During the depression era, big flashy jewellery took 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.
It packs a lot of punch for its size, with an expertly crafted illusion set diamond perched atop its raised setting and engraved platinum shoulders.
HOW TO WEAR:
This ring is lovely alone or perfect for stacking with its streamlined design.
Condition: The ring features a turned band measuring 2mm at its widest which graduates to a thinner 1mm base at the bottom . The shank is 1mm thick reduced to 0.5mm at the base owing to wear of the ring over time which is to be expected with any ring. The thinning of the bottom of the band has thinned the hallmark as in the photos. It is perfectly wearable but I wouldn’t recommend undertaking any manual labour or activities which would put significant pressure on the band on a daily basis. The diamond is well secured in its setting and the shoulders are strong.
