Mont Blanc is a phenomenal Edwardian era platinum and diamond ring, circa 1915. The stunning antique oval diamond is actually an EGL certified 2.39ct antique Oval Brilliant Cut graded G color and SI1 clarity. Though ovular shaped diamonds did exist during the early 1900's, often the shape was not the intention of the cutter who cleaved the material by hand at the turn of the century. By comparison, the modern Oval Brilliant cut diamond that we know today wasn't invented until 1957 by the Russian-born diamond cutter named Lazare Kaplan, making the shape of the diamond in this ring exceptionally ahead of its time and truly rare. A single channel set baguette adorns each shoulder and beautiful hand engraving on the band complete this timeless and elegant ring. The ring is currently a size 6 and can be sized to fit.

During the Edwardian period, technological advances caused major changes in the way that jewelry was manufactured. Jewelers were finally able to work with platinum, which allowed for more intricate and detailed pieces. Delicate settings with lots of diamonds were especially popular during this time, though we also see a number of different colored stones, including sapphires, aquamarines, and rare electric green demantoid garnets.
