A superb 1920s 1.25ct handmade diamond cluster ring. This ring features a rare 1.25 ct Old Mine Cut Diamond and is accompanied by a GSL Certified Diamond Grading Report and Valuation. The central diamond exhibits a fantastic colour for the age of the piece, as stones were graded by eye and they did not have the technology we are gifted with today. The Diamond is graded Colour: I and Clarity: VVS1. The surrounding 12 Diamonds total 0.24ct and are graded between a G to I in colour and have a mixed clarity of VS & SI. This ring is an early 1920s example, bordering in age with the style of the Edwardian era. This is evident in the soft, feminine lines and use of 18ct white gold bezel and gallery accompanied by an 18ct yellow gold upswept band. This setting is all handmade.
The 1920s Gone were the empire gowns of the Edwardian Era and in came the shorter, more free flowing flapper dresses with their dropped waists and flirty intentions. As a result the jewellery changed to compliment the latest fashion trends. While old cut gems were still being used, yellow gold was being fazed out and white gold and platinum were taking over the jewellery industry creating long necklaces with tassels on the end (satouirs), line bracelets and elongated earrings to stand out against short cropped hair. Rings were perfectly symmetrical and often featured contrasting stones which really added to the whole new look of the “Jazz Age”.
