Is this a vintage or vintage-style setting?

    Any idea if this is an actual vintage setting or a vintage-style setting available through some company? (In other words, do you recognize it as a setting produced and sold by some company/jeweler?)

    Here you go Lizabeth.
    It's a pretty setting but I cannot tell you if it is vintage. Hopefully someone here will know.

    The stone is a modern round brilliant. The detailing on the ring looks less "crisp" than I'd expect from a vintage piece: I'd guess it'd a reproduction cast from an older piece, though it could simply have an odd wear pattern. Pretty design!

    This ring was sold by rubylane.com in 2011, for $1295. It was described as a ".80 Carat Vintage Diamond Engagement Ring".

    Incidentally, the same ring was discussed on PS in a 2012 thread (and some alternatives were suggested to the OP):

    Good luck!
