French Belle Époque Pearl and Diamond Ring

$8,500

Dating from the early years of the 20th century, this platinum-topped gold ring is set with pearls and diamonds. Designed as an elongated vertical form with scrolling foliate motifs set with 46 old mine-cut diamonds, and enhanced throughout with millegrain accents, the ring centers a line of 6 graduating white pearls. Gracefully elongating the finger, this delicate French ring offers an all-white palette that subtly contrasts sparkling diamonds with satiny pearls.
