    Hello everyone!! I’m excited to share a proper post of my Edwardian engagement ring! My partner of 10 years proposed on Christmas Day with this beauty... I’m an antique and vintage jewelry collector, and it couldn’t be more perfect for me :love:

    I had the ring appraised this week, and it’s confirmed to be a true Edwardian period piece, c1910, entirely handmade in platinum. The 2 centre stones are old European cuts, and the 32 accent stones are a combination of old mine and European cuts.

    As many of you know, it can be difficult to capture both central stones in a toi et moi ring - I did my best:

    The gallery and band are as intricate as the face... I am in love with the carved band (and thankful it fits like a glove- no resizing required!!)

    And for those who appreciate a good view from behind:

    Congratulations on your engagement. The ring is stunning and the diamonds really pop. What a beautifully crafted piece. Did your fiancé surprise you with the ring, or did you “help” :kiss2: him in the right direction?

    Thank you!! He made the final choice - I wanted him to choose. He’s had the benefit :lol: of 10 years of exposure to my jewelry collecting ‘hobby’ & curated list of loves ... definitely easier than most men have it!!

    Wow! What a beautiful, delicate work of art. Really makes you appreciate old craftsmanship and care... And I don't think I have ever seen a shank like that. So cool!

    Congrats on the engagement and the stunning ring!
