April Jewel of the Month is one expressive Art Nouveau period 18 kt gold and platinum, antique diamond engagement ring. Although the ring is mainly yellow gold, the diamonds are set in platinum in keeping with the period. Many famous celebrities and even English Monarchs like to wear antique diamond engagement rings.
The The Duchess of Cornwall wears a royal heirloom, antique diamond ring.
In the 19th century some platinum antique engagement rings were set with Natural pearls.
The birthstone for April is diamonds and so I chose this particular Art Nouveau ring to feature this month as it contains three old mine brilliant cut diamonds that are sparkling with personality and have a total estimated weight of approx. 1.00 crt.
Hallmarks: French origin.
We are certain of the origin of this antique diamond ring because of the control mark for 18KT gold representing an eagle's head (that was in use in France from about 1838).
