Vintage Brilliant Solitaire in Gold & Platinum, Great Britain, circa 1980

Gently, almost touchingly carefully, the two curved ends of the ring rail hold the sparkling diamond enclosed. They shield it and lift it up at the same time. Securely held and set in platinum, the diamond almost floats above the finger, receives plenty of light and shines wonderfully. The diamond solitaire in this ring weighs around 0.17 ct and is of a good white colour (Wesselton, H), as well as being particularly pure: This makes it sparkle wonderfully when a ray of sunlight hits it. The ring has been crafted from high-carat yellow gold, while the stone setting is forged from platinum. The dynamics of the ring are indebted to the formal language of the years around 1900, but its workmanship, the stamping as well as the cut of the diamonds reveal that the ring was created in a later period. We date the ring to around 1980, and the pretty piece of jewellery came to us in London.
