I wanted to update my RT thread and say thank you to everyone who helped me, most notably LGK, Gypsy, and Dreamer. And an extra HUGE thanks to MrsSalvo without whom I would not have found this ring!

The ring features an old cut diamond weighing between 1.32 -1.38 ct (7.09 mm) set in a vintage platinum mounting dating back to Dec 25, 1928 (per the engraving). The appraiser said the stone was an F-G, VS1 (despite a couple of microscopic nicks on the girdle). She called it an old european, but the good symmetry makes me wonder if it's more of a transitional cut? She also said that the mounting was made all by hand. The side stones are also old europeans weighing an additional 27 points. And the best part is that it cost well below my original 7k budget. I feel very lucky!

A very beautiful ring. It appears like a transitional to me but a lovely stone indeed.

That must be one of the most gorgeous rings... EVER. Wow. I'm truly in awe.
Enjoy it!! And I've gotta ask, where did MrsSalvo/you find this incredibly well preserved piece of art history?!
