ABOUT THIS ITEM:  #R-JH720C. Scroll down for specifications.  Here is the quintessential diamond engagement ring design of the mid-twentieth century, the primary diamond flanked by tapering baguette diamonds, on a simple white metal setting.  The center diamond is much, much older than the ring itself, possibly updated to something more in keeping with the style of the time.  As an old mine-cut diamond it has no qualms about displaying its brilliance and charm under any lighting conditions.  However, its most romantic nature is blatantly front and center when seen under candle or incandescent light, mesmerizing big flashes of light with the fire of colors and sparkles.
