This Art Deco beauty would make an ideal engagement ring.

The central transitional round brilliant cut diamond is flanked by baguettes in a classic geometric pierced mount.

The proportions are harmonious and the diamonds are high quality – scroll through the photos to see how the centre stone dances with the light.

Transitional cut diamonds – usually found in jewellery from between the two world wars – are my personal favourite.

More reflective than old cuts, and more dispersive than modern cuts, to me they give out the perfect balance of soft bright fire.
