I have a bracelet with the mark 14k 200. What does the 200 mean?

Estate Diamond Engagement Ring
by: Anonymous

You can tell a lot about the gemstones. The baguette cut isn't an antique diamond but was invented in the early 20th century around the 1920s-30. It continues to be a popular diamond cut shape today, often used to highlight the sides of an engagement ring, just like your ring here. The baguette diamonds in your ring are quite long and they look slightly tapered which gives the ring a very elegant appearance.

I have a Colombian Emerald Ring with a small Baguette Diamond on each side of the square cut emerald, that I bought new in 2007. The colour of this emerald is just magic! The band is 18 carat yellow gold, and the combination, with the cut of stones, the combination of stones in a yellow gold setting, is what attracted me. Because the not so high quality of the baguette accent diamonds in this ring, the emerald is the main player, I have toyed with the idea of replacing the diamond baguette with the ruby baguette one of these days.


The date will depend conclusively on the success of the determination of the marks, but even if you do find that the maker's mark falls within the art deco period you would not really describe this ring as "Art Deco" as it characterising feature?

An estate diamond ring would be more appropriate a description, I feel. Good luck! I like it!
