A beautiful diamond solitaire ring from the 1940s-1950s. The band of this ring has been fashioned from 18ct yellow gold, while the diamond has been set in platinum. The shoulders of this piece are incredibly decorative.
The diamond is this ring is very interesting - clarity is very good but the stone is slightly tinted (yellow) in colour. This is because the diamond cutter has left a large 'natural' on the girdle of the stone - this is part of the outer edge of the original crystal and has been kept to preserve the weight of the stone. This natural is quite yellow in colour, and that colour is reflecting throughout the stone.
Tinting aside, it's a lovely stone and it does take an experienced eye to spot and appreciate the colour. It doesn't jump out at you when you glance down at the ring, which sparkles beautifully on the finger.
