Antique Belle Epoque Platinum and Diamond Two Stone Ring
A fine two-stone diamond ring, French, vertically millegrain set with cushion-shaped stones estimated to weigh 3cts each, within a frame of circular-cut stones, between trefoil shoulders, bearing French control mark on shank. Circa 1915.
The Belle Époque period is characterised by a white aesthetic: diamonds were predominantly set in white metal (silver, white gold or increasingly platinum) to sparkle in the illumination of electric light throughout a lavish dinner or Ball.
