A very attractive French retro bombe ring of rounded design in 18 carat yellow gold with six ridges of platinum rising to hold two round brilliant cut diamonds (approximately 0.75 carats each) to the centre. Each platinum ridge is outlined by single-cut diamonds, which are grain-set in platinum.
The workmanship in this ring is quite superb, with every stone mounting individually pierced, and despite its size, the ring is very comfortable to wear.
The ring measures 2.3cm across and 1.8cm along the finger, and is 2.8cm in height.
The 72 diamonds weigh approximately 2.55 carats in total, and are all clean and bright.
The ring is marked with the eagle’s head and the dog’s head poinçon for 18 carat gold, platinum, and French manufacture. The maker’s mark has been partially stamped and is illegible.
