This absolutely stunning vintage ring dazzles with a high quality and strikingly large 2.83ct old transitional cut diamond center set in a refined and timelessly classic setting! The center diamond is excellent in quality, certified with a grade of H-I for color and VS2 for clarity. The diamond has a large size at approximately 9.1mm in diameter, which looks equivalent to a 3 carat diamond. Weighing just below 3 carats, the diamond is significantly discounted but has the same appearance as a 3 carat. Bridging the gap between Old cuts and modern round brilliants, Old Transitional cut diamonds were produced for a very short period of time in the 1930s and 1940s and are exceptionally rare.
Cut entirely by hand, this vibrant diamond is charmingly vintage, completely unique, and guaranteed to be 100% conflict free! Striking with bold sparkle and vivid fire, this diamond has a truly phenomenal presence! The center diamond is flanked by two high quality tapered baguette cut diamonds set in a sleek and stately 14k white gold setting that serves as a refined backdrop. The effect is dazzlingly beautiful with a sophisticated air of Old Hollywood glamour!Rare, beautiful, and gorgeously unique, this vintage ring is an excellent choice for a high quality and truly impressive engagement or right hand ring! Certified by EGL-USA, the 2.83ct center diamond is graded VS2 for clarity. Exceptionally clean, the few inclusions are much too small to see with the naked eye. Graded H-I for color, it faces up beautifully white and shows no warmth. As an old Transitional cut, the diamond has old style facets and bold sparkle similar to an old European cut but with a smaller culet and proportions similar to modern standards. It absolutely retains the unique charm of a hand cut stone. It is the best of both worlds with old style faceting but with exceptional light performance. The accent diamonds are beautifully white and completely eye clean, graded G-H for color and VS1-VS2 for clarity. They are very well sized and compliment the center perfectly. The lab estimated the weight on these vintage baguettes at 0.25ct, but we feel they are closer to 0.35ct. The baguettes are individually quite substantial, and their long tapered baguette cuts add a sophisticated touch to the ring.
The ring is crafted in solid 14k white gold. The ring measures 9.15mm across (north south) and 8.4mm from finger to top.Overall, this beauty has a luxurious and striking look! With its head-turning sparkle and charming, high quality, vintage diamond, this beauty will make an engagement or right hand ring that you will be excited to show off! Unique and devastatingly gorgeous, this vintage ring is sure to become an heirloom, bringing joy to your family for generations to come! For additional details, please see below.
