Transitional cut diamonds represent a period of time when diamond cutting was making the transition from Old European Cut to an Modern Brilliant Cut.

In addition to the main focal three diamonds there are also two European cut accent diamonds. The total carat weight of all the gemstones in the ring is 1.53ctw. This would make an excellent choice for an engagement ring or even a wonderful anniversary ring. This vintage ring will touch your heart and soul with its timeless beauty. There’s something magical about jewelry from another era, with its own story to tell.
The Art Deco Period, which began around 1920 and ended about 1935, produced brilliant jewelry which was in contrast to the jewelry of the previous periods. The emphasis shifted from soft colors and flowing lines to bold, bright colors and straight lines. Women cut their long hair and began wearing it short and boyish. This was the era of jazz and flappers! Art Deco jewelry complimented the flamboyant and playful attitude of the day and remains a favorite of collectors today.
