Show off that 1920s sparkle with this beautiful coronet set 1.50ct old mine cut diamond engagement ring. Handmade in platinum with upswept tapered shoulders, 4 old cut diamonds elegantly sit alongside the central diamond stone emphasising its size and importance. The 1.50ct diamond is graded I/SI1 and is a very good colour grade for its age. The lack of technology in grading stones and no international grading system until 1953 meant that stones were assessed on an individual basis. In this era more emphasis was placed on the craftsmanship and size of the stones with only the wealthiest being able to indulge in a ring of this magnitude. This setting is all handmade.
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”.
