Edwardian engagement ring centering upon a 0.69 carat old European-cut diamond with GIA certificate stating the diamond is H color/VS1 clarity. Surrounded by old mine-cut diamonds. In a platinum and 18K yellow gold mount. Circa 1900.
The cluster ring is a classic and sits low on the finger. It's not without a lot of sparkle though. The multiple diamonds add flash.
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.
