Art Deco Engagement Ring with Stepwise Graduation, Balustrade Gallery, and Emerald Accents

Period: c. 1920s - early 1930s Art Deco; handmade with a hand-engraved shank — with its overall geometrically informed styling, stepwise graduation towards the center stone, and columned open gallery, this is about as classic Art Deco as it gets

Material: platinum

Dimensions: the top of the ring measures approx. 9.2 mm wide north to south; the ring stands 4.5 mm tall above the finger

Size: 5 1/4 (free sizing)

    Diamond Center: .79 carat late Transitional Cut diamond (though the stone has the classic shallow pavilion facets and resulting floral pattern characteristic of Transitional Cuts, GIA assessed this stone as a Round Brilliant); J color; VS1 clarity
     Diamond Accents: .25 ctw., est.; fourteen Single Cut diamonds w/approx. G color and VS clarity overall (accent diamonds assessed in their mounting by a GIA GD—weights and grades are approximate and determined as mounting permits)
     Emerald accents: two rectangular mixed-cut emeralds (origin, makeup, and treatment status cannot be confirmed without laboratory examination)
