Vintage engagement ring set with a 1.02 carat old European-cut diamond with GIA certificate stating the diamond is E color/VVS2 clarity. Set in platinum. Signed Monture Cartier, numbered. Circa 1950
A beautiful ring with an interesting story. For very special clients, Cartier mounted client’s stones in Cartier settings and used a special signature, Cartier Monture to signify that it was a customer stone. The stone itself is an exquisite E color meaning colorless. And VVS which is very very clean.
Diamond and gold mining has caused devastation in areas such as Africa, wreaking havoc on delicate ecosystems and communities. Choosing to go vintage, you are eliminating the need for more mining and lessening the demand for new diamonds.
