  • Era: Given this style ring first became popular during the mid to late Edwardian years (c. 1910s-1918 before WWI), and continued to be beloved well into the 1920s, this ring could date to anywhere between 1910- the mid 1920s. The standardized formula for white gold was patented around 1921, but white gold was, indeed, used for years and even decades before this patent was filed. Thus, the estimated age of the ring stands. 
  • Buyer Notes: This ring is an ultra chic engagement style that, even in its over 100 years of life, continues to be timelessly relevant. Its slim shoulders and band in tandem with its smoothed bezeled silhouette work together to showcase the dramatic cut of the center diamond. The diamond shows some carbon freckles under extreme magnification, though it absolutely dazzles in rainbow refractions just as one desires an old cut stone to do. The white gold and the diamond color both fall on the warmer end of the spectrum, an ode to their antique beginnings, and a characteristic not found in modern bezeled diamond rings. This piece is a romantic treasure, a show of Edwardian design and a sparkling history.

Specifications:

  • Center Stone Type: Diamond
  • Center Stone Count: One (1)
  • Center Stone Carat Weight: By formula, 0.55 ct
  • Center Stone Dimensions: 5.05 x 5.05 x 3.40 mm (measured within mount)
  • Center Stone Shape: Old European Cut
  • Center Stone Color: Estimated K-L in mount (white gold and platinum bezels are known for their ability to visually ‘whiten’ the coloration of the diamonds they hold, and as such, this diamond faces up whiter than it is actually classified as being)
  • Center Stone Clarity: SI1-SI2 (natural carbon specks are visible under a loupe [as pictured], but the stone has been smartly faceted so that they are primarily relegated to the outermost edge of the diamond and visually camouflaged by the engraved wreath on the bezel)

The Story:

This engagement ring is a stunning achievement of Edwardian elegance and centers a hand-cut solitaire diamond. This diamond is faceted in the Old European style, with a broad pattern of facets that are notably chunkier in appearance than those of Modern Round Brilliants. OEC stones gradually went out of fashion by the 1950s or so, and as such, this ring is an heirloom of a bygone era of fashion and craftsmanship. 

The stone is classified as having the slightest warm hue, though due to the white gold mounting, this is not noticeable to the eye.The ring mount is crafted of a white gold alloy that bears a particularly ‘sunnier’ tonality than modern white gold that is plated in rhodium to brighten up the silvery color. Please reference the photos of the ring with other white gold and platinum rings to see how its atypical color varies. Though neither the diamond nor the mount are whatsoever yellowed, together they harmonize to boast the antique origins of the ring. 

The bezeled mount tenderly crowns the diamond, the texture of the wreath-like engraving carefully undulating around the circumference of the diamond’s girdle. The design is a whimsical play between the white gold of the mount and the sparkle of the diamond. From every angle, the steep angle of the OEC’s cut proudly catches the eye atop the collet setting. The engraving that surrounds the diamond continues down the shoulders, which are themselves very slender, very feminine. In antique betrothal jewelry, interlocking wheat patterns symbolize fertility and abundance and prosperity in unity.

The north and south sides of the mounting show slight variances between them, evidencing their age and affectionate use over the last 100 or more years. Closest to the finger, the rounded mount is designed as a delicate fenestration of linework that elevates an upper gallery comprised of pierced circular forms, which then supports the uppermost wreathed bezel. This is a lovely expression of this style ring, which continued to be a popular choice amongst brides to be well into the 1920s Art Deco era. Indeed, its bezel is chic and timeless, while its engravings are storied and its stone a cherished relic of the turn of the century.

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.
