Description

  • Tiffany & Co.
  • platinum, colored diamond, diamond, ring
The modified marquise-shaped diamond of fancy blue color weighing 3.54 carats, within a delicate mounting set with old European-cut and single-cut diamonds weighing approximately .35 carat, size 3½, bearing partial signature 'T' for Tiffany & Co., two diamonds missing.  With fitted box signed Tiffany & Co.

Catalogue Note

Accompanied by GIA report no. 5141498993 stating that the diamond is Fancy Blue, Natural Color, VS1 clarity.

Centered by a diamond of enchanting cut and color, this exquisite piece has remained in the family since being presented to the current owner's great-great grandmother.  The elegant mounting, with its millegrained borders and endearingly sweet floral motifs, prefigures the refinement and delicacy of the Edwardian era.  Turn-of-the-century rings, particularly those by esteemed houses such as Tiffany & Co., appear with diminishing frequency in today's marketplace.  For such a piece to be set with a Fancy Blue diamond is rarer still, making this ring a truly exceptional jewel.
