Ask a question

If you’re looking for a genuine Art Deco engagement ring, this solitaire with tiny accent diamonds on the shoulders might be the one.

The central old European cut diamond weighs just over half a carat and is white, bright and lively.

Handcrafted in 18-carat white gold, it has the classic stepped-down design (inspired by South American ziggurats) and pierced gallery of the period.

The square setting surrounding the round diamond is also typical, reinforcing the overall geometric design.

A nice detail lies in the split claw setting of the central diamond, giving extra security without taking away from the fine appearance.
