Looking for an original Art Deco ring and came across this on eBay.

Platinum
Centre diamond:OEC 0.8 ct, J/K colour, VS1 ( emailed seller and he said its clean under loupe)

Diamonds in band: 6x Natural Genuine Diamonds - Round Single Cut - Bead Set - G Color - VS1 Clarity - 0.18ctw (approx.)

Seller wants $3410.10
I am in the UK so I also need to factor in shipping costs, custom taxes etc.

Any help will be greatly received.

So, do you love it? Is it perfect?


Is there a lab report? Or is the color/clarity estimated?

What is the seller's rating? How many reviews?

The price is probably reasonable compared with what you'd pay in the UK but I personally would not buy anything from overseas unless I knew exactly what I was getting, including the condition of the ring setting. I'd stick with a well known vendor who provides full appraisals, such as Jewels by Grace. I've just had a look and she currently has nothing similar to your one but here's an example of the sort of thing she sells, you can see the appraisal report here too:

There UK sellers on etsy too, I've bought from Addy in the past and she sometimes has Art Deco-y pieces.

Best of luck!

Okay I just did a few searches. IMO it's very overpriced. At least by 400 and if that stone is uncerted, then by 600 or more.

Thank you for the help!!!

I do really like it but I am not sure about the overseas purchase.

Seller has good feedback and returns policy.

Arrrghhhhh why does the UK have to be so expensive!

Think I will ask the seller a few more questions.

There is also this ring from a private UK based seller.

Art Deco diamond ring

The main centre stone is approximately one carat colour of G/H approximately clarity of VS1/2 the baquette diamonds weigh about 0.25 in total.
Asking £3800 for it but will take sensible offers.

The original ring looks more yellow than a J/k

That one in the link is lovely but the setting seems quite high.

We've been 'engaged' for years but I've never had a ring but I have decided I would like one now. Though feel clueless to what I actually want. The thing I know is I want an antique/vintage ring (not sure what the difference is).

Thanks for the help
