1940's Diamond Engagement Ring & Wedding Band Set in Platinum
An absolutely stunning platinum wedding band set with the sentimental engraving of "JR to HL 4-24-46." The character of this set is both in its classic design as well as the subtle details - the engagement ring prongs have clover-like flower details, and the shoulders come to a triangular point on either side.
It's increasingly difficult to find matching sets such as this one; this is a truly special find.
The engagement ring holds a sizable .72 CT total weight of diamonds, and the matching wedding band - which is beautifully streamlined - holds 7 diamonds with a total weight of .14 CT. All in all, the set offers .86 CT of diamonds! It comes with a complimentary appraisal valuing it at the listing price - and it quite a good deal for the quality and size of the diamonds.
HISTORY: 1940's, engraved "JR to HL 4-24-46" in the wedding band.
MATERIALS: Platinum ring and band, diamonds. The platinum alloy in this is 90% platinum and 10% Iridium, as stamped in both rings "900 PLAT 100 IRID".
SIZE: Ring size 5 1/4. In the engagement ring, the center diamond is an estimated .6 CT, H in color and VS2 in clarity. It's an early Modern Brilliant cut. The six round single cut diamonds surrounding it (3 on either side) are an estimated .12 CT total weight, G-H color and VS-SI clarity. In the band, there are 7 single cut diamonds weighing an estimated .14 CT total weight, G-H color and VS-SI clarity. The engagement ring weighs 2.8 g and the band weighs 2.5 g.
CONDITION: Gorgeous antique condition. The prongs are strong and band is still quite thick on both pieces. On either side of the engagement ring setting it is rubbed smooth where the band has been fitting against it all these years - this is common for the age of the ring, and doesn't in any way detract from its beauty. The detailing on the shoulders of the engagement ring are still crisp, as are the flower-like design on the prongs.
