Vintage Estate Diamond Engagement Ring 14K Yellow Old European Cut Qtr Ct

This is a diamond ring featuring a simple 14K yellow gold mounting and high quality old European cut diamond set in a decorative white gold or platinum head with 4-part prongs. A white gold head makes the diamond appear learger than its actual size.

The only legible mark is 14K. The diamond is very clean and has good color.

This ring is from the 1930s or 1940s. At that time, a diamond this size (about 1/4 ct) was a large stone for an engagement ring (average size diamonds in engagement rings were less than half this size).

This ring would fit well with many different band or guard styles and could be used as an engagement ring or worn alone as a right-hand ring. When we had our estate jewelry shop, I sold many older engagement rings to women who wore them as pinkie rings.

With the very high price of gold and diamonds today, it is almost impossible to buy a diamond ring in a jewelry store for less than $500 - $600. This is an opportunity to buy a very nice diamond ring at a very low price.

Inv #1624e.

SIZE: This ring is currently a finger size 6 1/2. The stone is at least 1/4 ct. The narrowest point on the band (center bottom) is 2.2 mm wide, and the total weight of the ring is 2.0 grams.

Because the shank is plain, this ring could be sized either up or down by a competent goldsmith. If you do not have one, my goldsmith could size it for $35. If you're interested in this service, please convo me.

PICTURES HAVE BEEN ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAIL. PLEASE SEE SIZE SECTION ABOVE FOR ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS AND WEIGHTS.

TO ASSURE THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PURCHASING, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE A RULER TO SEE WHAT SIZE THE ITEM IS. MOST RULERS HAVE A MILLIMETER SCALE OPPOSITE THE INCH SCALE.

CONDITION: This ring is in excellent condition. The only flaw I see is a pinpoint-sized chip on one of the top facets of the diamond. This is visible with magnification but cannot be seen with the naked eye.

BACKGROUND: I've sold vintage and estate jewelry for nearly 30 years and have heard the same compliments over and over. Customers love jewelry that's different from what they see in jewelry stores. The low prices are an added bonus.

Layaway is available for this item. The terms are 1/3 at purchase, 1/3 in 30 days, and the final 1/3 in another 30 days. Layaway payments are nonrefundable.

Etsy U.S. SHIPPING: I am one of the few Etsy sellers not charging shipping for my jewelry. I include delivery confirmation and insurance at no charge.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International shipping/handling/insurance via express mail (the only class of mail that meets Paypal's tracking requirement) will be $38.00.

I complete documents honestly showing the sale price as the value. Please do not ask me to reduce the value or show the item as a gift.

Some countries have restrictions on importing jewelry and other items. I cannot, of course, ship to your country if import of a particular class of goods is prohibited.
