Vancouver is a stunning and authentic Retro era platinum three stone engagement ring dated 1943. The ring centers a four prong-set 1.23ct EGL certified Old Mine Cushion Brilliant Cut diamond graded J color and VS1 clarity. A pair of Old Mine Cut diamonds flank either side of the center stone, totaling approximately 0.34ct in weight. The antique stones date back to the late 1800's and were most likely remounted in the platinum setting in the 1940's. The inside of the wide, tapering shank is hand engraved "R.E.K to C de L 2.14.43". Vancouver is currently a size 7 and can be sized to fit.
As economic growth expanded the upper middle class in the 1950s, jewelry reflected this new prosperity with flashy, dramatic designs and a focus on diamond stones. The basic designs were quite similar to the Retro period, but were executed differently, often featuring textured accents and engraved finishes.
