Here are some better pics. She looks flawless to the eye and boy does she give off some serious heat(disclaimer- shameless bragging rant). She is a 1.01 carat that looks 1.5 with .6 tiny diamonds and about .5 carat synthetic sapphire. Circa 1945-1950.
Sorry to gush but I love this ring! Try not to look at my hands. They are a mess from winterizing my Koi pond.
Re: My Vintage Transition Cut Diamond Ring In Platinum

Thank you so much for the reply. I should have posted that the diamond I thought was 1950-1955 but it may be older. The setting is most likely 1910-1920. If you can get your hands on rings with irradiated platinum- grab them fast. Think ebay. These rings are 90 % platinum and 10% irridium for strength. They are tough and beautiful. Much tougher then soft, bendable platinum.
Also a transition cut, european cut and mine cut diamond will show more "fire" and throw off lots of color due to the facets. Less light return then a modern ideal cut.
Glad you joined the boards. I don't post here much but there is a nice bunch of people here.
