The perfect geometric symmetry of an emerald cut diamond is contrasted beautifully by its setting's romantic details in this solitaire from the 1980s! The 14k yellow gold mounting is bold and weighty– its tapered thickness nearly meeting the long edge of its diamond. Squared, milgrain edges give way to scrolls carved in relief on its shoulders, adding naturalistic curves that allow the stunning symmetry of the diamond to shine. Gorgeous carvings and etchings cover the entire surface of the setting, marrying maximalism to the minimalism of the emerald cut diamond. Emerald cut diamond's few facets create an open window into the stone, requiring exceptional clarity to mirror the light in enchanting displays of reflection. This stone proves worthy of the task, boasting a VS2 clarity grade. The EGL certified diamond (EGL Report #US400157295D) weighs 1.05 carat and is graded J color. The ring is currently a size 6 1/4 and may be resized up or down upon request.
