1930s Art Deco 1.15ct Emerald Step Cut Diamond (F-G/VS1) Ring
Platinum, 0.20ctw Baguette Diamond Sides, $8995
These almost never turn up— Deco-era emerald cut diamond rings. Most emerald cut diamond rings are from the 1950s and later, and they often lack the slender, elegant proportions of the 1930s rings.
