An immaculate eternity ring featuring over 2/3 of a carat of fine white single cut diamonds in a handmade palladium setting, circa 1930’s, with glorious hand engraved sides.
Palladium is the rarest and most expensive of the precious metals – at the moment it is worth more than twice the price of platinum, and is more expensive than 24 carat gold. It is hard wearing like platinum but whiter in colour. It was first used in jewellery in the 1930’s when platinum was annexed for military use only.
The 22 diamonds are bead set into the ring, which is open at the back to allow the most sparkle. Each diamond is approximately 3 points (.03 of a carat) they range in colour from F – H in colour and Vs-Vvs in clarity.
The ring is entirely handmade and shows very little signs of wear. In the past she must have been someone’s very special occasion ring, but is entirely suitable for everyday wear.
The ring is 3mm wide and sits 1.8mm high on the finger. It weighs 2.1 grams
Size K 1/4 or 5.5 but may fit a little smaller due to the width.
