The first documented use of a diamond engagement ring can be traced to the Archduke Maximilian of Austria in 1477. Since then, the tradition has taken root in many Western cultures. Among the highlights of the upcoming Fine Estate Jewelry auction, presented by Kimball Sterling, is a diamond and platinum engagement ring. It is designed with one 3.19-carat emerald-cut natural diamond and two brilliant-cut diamonds. One of these stones exhibits a faint blue fluorescence. The diamonds are set in a platinum, hand-wrought mounting.
Another lot of interest is a diamond and sapphire bracelet. This piece was constructed with four strands of gems, each including round brilliant and Old European-cut natural diamonds. The mounting features a 14-karat white gold concealed box clasp with dual safety latches. The sale also includes a rhodolite garnet and diamond dress ring. Rhodolite was first discovered in Cowee Valley, Macon County, North Carolina. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
