If you’ve been looking for the perfect engagement ring, could this be the one?

It features a lively white transitional cut diamond estimated at 1.77 carats, with H colour and SI2 clarity, in an elegant handcrafted 18-carat white gold and platinum setting.

The side view reveals a pattern of hand-pierced hearts between the supporting claws.

Two small antique diamonds are finely set on each side of the band, adding a touch of sparkle and a sense of completion across the finger.

This is a fine example of a classic early 20th century rendition of a beautiful solitaire.
