The Story:

Insanely bright white with extraordinary clarity, this soldered bridal set is every bit as Mid Century as it is timeless. This piece consists of two rings professionally soldered together to form a single wearable ring, a very smart and practical ‘conversion’. The engagement ring portion boasts a vintage emerald cut diamond center stone, with linear precision and architectural exactitude that simply cannot be beat. Further emphasizing the center stone’s perfect geometry is its vivid white color, considered by industry experts to be near colorless, as well as its completely clean complexion to both the eye and under significant magnification. 

Flanking this rectangular diamond are two tapered baguette diamond accent stones that decorate the shoulders of the piece. These side diamonds share the same color and clarity as the feature stone, and add a dazzling sparkle to the ring from all angles. This soldered duo is modeled entirely in 14k beautifully polished white gold, a much more economical alternative to platinum, of which many rings of this style were crafted. 

Moreover, the rings were created by the famed J.R. Wood & Sons of Brooklyn, New York, which was established in 1850. This fine jewelry manufacturer was a family-owned business that was originally created as a producer of professional jewelry-making tools. They grew, instead, to become especially famed for their gold bands for both men and women, designed as friendship rings and gifts, as well as wedding bands and sentimental memorial rings. Many of their later rings are identified by maker’s marks that include a sideways ‘W’. The company was eventually bought out, and in 1973, became what is known today as the still extant ‘ArtCarved’ brand. ArtCarved is equally famous for their wedding bands, engagement rings and bridal sets, such as this one.

The interior of this set bears the hallmark sideways ‘W’, the metal purity stamp of ‘14K’, and most desirably, ‘ArtCarved’. Perhaps the most romantic touch to this piece is the hand-inscribed ‘P . A . V . to H . R . S . 2 - 16 - 57’, which indicates both lovers’ initials as well as their presumed wedding date, which was just after Valentine’s Day over 60 years ago. Though an heirloom of generations past, this classic ring set is as wearable and chic today as it was the day it was first made.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
