A touch of history ... Original Art Deco platinum engagement ring with cushion cut diamond and sapphires.

Art Deco diamond ring (circa 1920) starring in its center a 0.75 carat Old European cushion cut diamond, bezel set in a geometric setting highlighted by four calibre triangle cut sapphires and 12 sparkling diamonds (four old mine cut and eight single cut) bordered by calibre carre cut sapphires. The shoulders of the ring feature another eight single cut diamonds. This ring is not only a beauty to look at from the top but its backside is also worth to look at, deliciously handcrafted in a most elegant way.

In recent years such rings have normally been set with a gemstone, usually a diamond (or any stone other than the ill-reputed opal), as a solitaire, of varying sizes, cuts, styles, and cost, but in the 19th century some were set with a pearl. In the same century the custom arose in England of separate engagement ring and wedding ring, and in very recent years such rings have sometimes been made en suite as a matching pair of similar style.
