1940s 0.46ct Transitional Cut Diamond (approx. H/SI1) Ring Single Cut Diamonds, 14K White Gold, $1795
The shape of this mounting permits a band to nest directly against it. The idea of an engagement ring and wedding band fitting together perfectly didn’t really come into favor until the 1940s. So many earlier engagement rings weren’t designed with that in mind. I happen to like the look of rings not sitting perfectly against one another, but I can certainly see the appeal of having them match up nicely too. So if that’s your thing, this is your ring.
