Vintage Art Deco Marcus & Co. engagement ring centered with a GIA certified 4.94 carat transitional cut diamond crafted in platinum with intricate metalwork depicting Art Deco motifs of the Greek key, emphasis on symmetry, architectural columns, and a wheat pattern on the band.
Old European cut diamonds were popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They are characterized by their round shape, small table, high crown, and open culet. Often set in intricate and ornate designs, they were prized by jewelry aficionados for their beauty. One such renowned jeweler that excelled in creating masterpieces with old European cut diamonds was Marcus & Co., a prominent American luxury jewelry house founded in 1892. Known for their exceptional craftsmanship and innovative designs, Marcus & Co. pieces often featured intricate motifs inspired by various cultures and historical periods, including the Greek key design. The Greek key, a motif consisting of interlocking geometric patterns symbolizing infinity and eternal flow, was frequently incorporated into Marcus & Co.'s jewelry.
