Floating-Bezel Set Diamond Engagement Ring in Rose and White Gold

Period: European origin; handmade; c. late 1940s or ‘50s, but with a pronounced Victorian design influence--indeed, it is so Victorian in style that it could certainly hail from c. 1920 or even c. 1900, but we believe it was made just after WWII. In Shauna's unguarded and less-than scholarly summary, "It's f#@%ing pretty, whatever it is." 

Materials: 14K rose gold shank and base; unplated 14K white gold basket, bezel, and shoulders; a very subtle touch of yellow in the lower shoulders (which is, to our eyes, invisible in person without perfect lighting and some serious scrutiny)

Dimensions: the ring measures approx. 7.30 mm across the top north to south; it stands 5.25 mm tall above the finger
Size: currently a hair over 7 (free sizing)

Diamonds: Diamond graded in its mounting by a GIA GD--grades are approximate and determined as mounting permits.
    Center: 1.00 carat late Transitional / early Brilliant Cut diamond with a large culet and approx. L-M color and VS2-SI1 clarity (eye clean)
     Accents: .03 ctw., est.; two antique Rose Cut diamonds
