Men's Antique Art Deco 18ct Gold Diamond Solitaire Ring
We don't stock many pieces of gents antique jewellery, but when we came across this lovely antique solitaire ring we had to grab it. It's a classically styled ring with clear hallmarks for 1929-1930: a ring made in London during the roaring 1920s. And certainly the man this ring was commissioned for was doing reasonably well for himself in life, because the diamond is just lovely. It's a transitional cut stone and the clarity - though it doesn't look exceptional by modern standards - is great by antique jewellery standards. Transitional cut diamonds are from an era when stone cutters were moving away from old cut diamonds, but hadn't yet quite perfected the modern round brilliant cut we are used to today. Colour wise, the diamond jumps out of the ring at you: it's white, bright and beautiful. The stone has been 8 claw set in solid 18ct yellow gold and over 6 grams of the noble metal has been used to make this ring. It's a UK size V, and would work well as a engagement ring, a wedding ring or an anniversary ring for a man. Whatever you seek to gift this ring for, he will love it.
