WELCOME TO CYPRESS CREEK VINTAGE JEWELRY. Antique Art Deco or Edwardian 1.56 ct Old Mine Cushion Cut Diamond 18K White Gold Engagement Ring. This is an amazing Art Deco engagement ring with a shining Old Mine cushion cut diamond.This is my favorite old mine cut that I've seen with the characteristic, very small table. It is estimated at 1.56 carats. It has only a few inclusions that one can see under magnification. It will receive an I1 grading because of a feather inclusion in the center of the table area.
This one really sparkles like dew or rain drops. It faces up like a 2 carat oval diamond. Then there was a 4-leaf clover, followed by 3/19/1929, 18K. I actually believe, based on style, diamond, and metal, that this was an Edwardian ring and that the engraving was created later. Maybe parents passed the ring down to their child in 1929 for her wedding?- I was enthralled at the idea of who the original owner could have been. The first purchaser had it sized down so the date is gone, but the initials and clover remain. (Now it is on consignment and available in the shop once again). The setting is my favorite part of the ring.
There are orange blossoms with micro-milgrain weave filigree, and pretty leaves throughout the gallery. Your prongs are double claws for a total of eight. It is intricate and amazing. The antique boxes in the photos are not included.
Your ring will arrive in new gorgeous gift packaging. (Antique ring box is available for sale in separate listing). Video is posted to our Instagram page at Cypress Creek Vintage.
