Antique platinum ring with two carats in old cut, England 1910
A radiantly beautiful old-cut diamond in an individual cut is the focal point of this finely crafted ring made of solid platinum. The diamond, with its wonderful light refraction and splendid brilliance, weighs 2.01 ct and displays a sparkling firework of light reflections. Its color has been graduated by an independent laboratory as "tinted white", with a very good clarity (vs2). The platinum of the dome setting, the most expensive metal at the time of the ring's creation in the years around 1910, is particularly beautiful, with its festive colouring bringing out the sparkle of the magnificent two-carat. This is a solitaire in the old cut, which derives its special charm from the fact that it is clearly distinguishable from industrially cut, modern brilliant-cut diamonds. The diamond set here is unmistakable and sparkles in a natural light, similar to candlelight. We discovered the ring with the wonderful two-carat diamond in London. It breathes the spirit of the Edwardian era, which had declared elegance and lightness as its ideal and wanted to set a counterpoint to the often heavy designs from Victorian times. It was a time of new ideas, a dawning of a new century. The fine platinum setting was manufactured by the Charles Green & Son manufactory, which was founded in Birmingham as early as 1824. This dreamlike piece of jewellery is a timeless jewel with a classic design and beauty that transcends the ages.
