Antique engagement ring centered with a 1.21 carat GIA certified old European cut diamond with J color/SI1 clarity. With stylized shoulders set with single cut diamonds of .05 carats in platinum. Signed Kohn. Circa 1915.
This old European cut is so deliciously robust and demands attention. Theodore Kohn was a well-known jeweler in old New York.
