This ring is all about the quality of the rose cut diamond. A rose cut diamond has a flat bottom and a top of diamond shaped facets that catch the light. This is an extremely fine example and having a French pedigree and exquisitely crafted mount makes it a winner.
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.
