Ornate High-Edwardian Engagement Ring with a GIA Old European Cut Diamond

Period: c. 1905-1925 late/post Edwardian; this ring is what we often refer to as “High Edwardian” in that the piece could serve as a museum reference for design during and just following the reign of King Edward VII (reigned January 1901 to May 1910). The ornate metalwork, abounding milgrain, soft yet proud buildup to the diamond, and organically-inspired hand engraving of wheat and orange blossoms all bespeak an era rife with aesthetic sensibilities. 

Materials: platinum; diamonds

Dimensions: the diamond measures 6.79 mm in diameter at its widest point; the ring stands 5.60 mm tall above the finger
