An antique ring centering a button pearl, with report from Laboratoire Français de Gemmologie stating it is a natural saltwater pearl. With a two-tiered openwork surround of 54 old mine diamonds, approx. 1.10 carats. Set in 18k gold and platinum. With French hallmarks of when it was imported into France. Circa 1910.
We love this as an engagement AND as a statement ring. A beautiful natural creamy white button pearl and alllll the smallest old mine diamonds you’ve ever seen!
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.
