Vintage 1.28 CTW Moissanite Solitaire Platinum Engagement Ring

Vintage 1.28 CTW Moissanite Solitaire Platinum Engagement Ring

1,095.00

Brilliant and bold, this vintage moissanite solitaire is set within a tall, six-prong gallery atop a heavy platinum band. Its design is a classic one, with shoulders that taper at pleasing angles toward the feature stone. The band is thick and rounded, its size making it ample in platinum content and thus, considerably more valuable. Though not noticeable from the face of the ring, the prongs of this ring have a slight curve from years of loving wear, one that is not threatening to the integrity, strength or quality of the piece. This kind of trait may be expected for fine vintage jewelry, as well as easily corrected by your favorite jeweler. The pricing reflects this repairable imperfection. The moissanite stone itself is perfectly eye-clean; it is impossible to overstate just how much brighter and more refractive this stone is than its diamond counterparts.

This solitaire engagement ring is simply elegant, an environmentally-friendly and ethical alternative to traditional diamond jewelry. Moissanites have been an excellent sustainable option to diamonds since 1893 when the mineral was discovered in a meteorite-caused crater in Arizona. Moissanite is a naturally-occurring mineral found in small quantities in the Earth, and newer moissanites are created in labs to preserve what deposits still remain in nature. The earlier the ring, the likelier it is that the moissanite is natural and of antique age.

These stones are very easily confused with diamonds because their hardness and appearance is comparable. Even most modern diamond testers’ technology cannot distinguish the difference between the two. Interestingly however, moissanites rate higher than diamonds in both hardness and brilliance, making them more durable and sparkly than traditional diamonds. Because of these characteristics, dazzling moissanites are incredibly desirable and have been a favorite for eco-conscious brides since the turn of the century.
