Please don’t buy this it’s now on hold!

I’m excited to offer this beautiful French ring from about 1915.

The quality is lovely throughout.

The old European brilliant cut of about 1.46 carats is set in a fine platinum millegrained bezel, surrounded by a diamond set halo, with an attractive space between the two.

Three small diamonds on each side embellish the shoulders and band.

The mount is delicately hand-pierced and sits low on the hand, as one would expect from Edwardian/Belle Époque times.

Diamond cutting was evolving in this period, with the old European cut gradually moving towards a more modern form.

Note the small culet on the main diamond – this helps to give very good reflection from the white and lively centre.
