Art Deco Diamond 5-Stone Star Ring
An alluring antique 5-stone ring made during the early Art Deco era - at some point in the 1920s. The setting is kind of interesting... five small diamonds are surrounded by a wide, complex engraved platinum bezel, designed to make the stones appear much larger than they really are by mimicking the appearance of light reflecting off the pavilion facets. It's quite convincing, even from just a foot or so away, and would have been quite attractive to that young couple keeping up appearances whilst tying the knot on a shoestring. I actually really like the aesthetic, from a distance it looks like a 1-2 carat five-stone, but up close it looks like the glittering diamonds are the centres of stars. It's built in 18 carat yellow gold and platinum with HS maker's mark. Set with a central old European cut diamond flanked by two rose cuts on either side.
