Antique 1920s 18k White Gold Bombe Style Engagement / Cocktail Ring
Stunning and sparkly, this diamond bombe style ring in 18k white gold comes from around the roaring 1920s. The romantic pierced style of the ring allows for ample light which creates dramatic sparkles in any light. Perfect to take her breath away as an engagement ring or amazing finger coverage as a right hand cocktail/statement ring. The centre of the ring hosts an old european cut diamond of approx half a carat (VS-1, F-G) with a further 18 round to oval old european cut diamonds of 0.08-0.10 points each. Total estimated weight is 2.14 carats.
The band is stamped for 18k white gold in a size 8.25-8.5 (style of ring has ample room under the dome which could allow for slightly larger fit). There is some sizing like marks to the very back of the band, so likely sized up at one point in time. Shoulders of the ring feature lovely wheat sheaf style markings that taper off towards the reverse of the ring, which is plain.
Diamond details: Centre diamond measures approx 5.00 x 5.00 x 3.48mm or 0.52 point. It shows a very large culet, visible to the eye, with good symmetry. Clarity of VS-1, color F-G. Additional diamonds measure approx 2.00-2.20 x 2.6-2.80mm or 0.08-0.10 points. Culets range from pointed to extremely large in size and most are visible to the eye. Clarity ranges from VS-SI-2 and F-G to M-N or lower. A couple of diamonds have noticeable yellowing and a few have visible chips from wear.
Condition notes: As per diamond details, there are some yellow-ish colors in a few diamonds and some chips are evident, especially to side stones (use zoom functions for better visual). Sizing marks evident on reverse of band.
