Beautiful circa 1930s - 1940s Old European Cut engagement ring set in 14 karat white and yellow gold. The main diamond is illusion set, a design commonly used to make the stone look larger. The two smaller diamonds, one on each side, are single cut diamonds, also illusion set. Illusion settings have metal surrounding the stones at a lower level and might have a small design, such a slight wave, or lines engraved in a certain way. The setting is meant to catch the light and reflect it back, just like the diamond does, giving the impression that the stone is larger than it is.

The diamonds are all set in white gold with the band being yellow gold. On each side below the centre diamond there is a heart design in the metal.

Old European diamonds were hand cut and have chunkier facets than modern cut stones. They have a smaller table, taller crown, and open culet. This particular one has a beautiful, even pattern. I find that older cut diamonds sparkle quite a lot in lower light levels, such as candle light. Such a gorgeous example from the late Art Deco period!
