Platinum, European Cut Diamond & Light Pastel Color Pearl Ring, circa 1935
Platinum ring circa 1935 possessing old European cut diamonds and a very light grey pearl and a golden creme pearl in a bypass design ring.
The pearls both have a very subtle pastel color, these spherical pearls measure 9.37 mm. and 9.75 mm. in diameter, both have a deep nacre and a high luster and luminescence. The 10 old European cut diamonds are estimated to weigh .90 cts. These diamonds are all near colorless (I/J) and very slightly to slightly included. This vintage ring is in fine condition, a size 7 and can be resized.
This bypass motif (also called, moi et toi) is a very old symbol of love and commitment.
Today, a preponderance of jewelry is machine made in large factories around the world with abundant and obvious suspensions as to its enduring qualities using not only inferior stones, but also man made stones and treated stones utilizing artificial substances.
Alternatively, this classic bypass platinum ring possesses a hand-crafted unique ring centering fine fine Akoya pearls which are well matched in their shape and luster.
