1950s marquise diamond and platinum ring


The Story

This vintage platinum marquise diamond ring from circa 1950s is striking and elegant.  The diamond half-band is comprised of nine marquise diamonds, which total approximately 2.38 carats in total diamond weight.  Five marquises are set vertically with the center three diamonds each about 0.50 carats with two diamonds on the end each about 0.30 carats.  The four marquise diamonds (two on each side) are set horizontally at an angle, adding a dynamic contrast.

The ring sits close off the finger for a comfortable, easy fit.  This ring would make a unique engagement ring, wedding band, and a right-hand ring.
