My partner is forging on but she's added some terrific buys to that sale too. But today, I just have to tell you about her latest addition to our DIVINE FINDS SHOP at RUBY LANE. This ring is truly to die for!!
|RARE Antique Edwardian Platinum TIFFANY & Co. Pearl Diamond Ring|
Any ordinary pearl diamond ring pales in comparison to this RARE and highly collectible ring! From her ad, she tells us that
This clearly marked Edwardian-period Tiffany & Co. pearl & diamond ring, stamped '100% IRID, 90% PLAT', which factually dates it pre-1926, holds 3 STUNNING button pearls of a glowing whitish-silver hue, along with 34 dazzling diamonds!
... Of the 34 diamonds, 33 of them are early Old European cut in shape... they're not all round as most Old Euros are, but they're not as rectangular as Old Mines... they transition between the two.
I'm sure I don't need to tell you the desirability of owning any signed designer ring, like a Tiffany, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels etc. Designer signed rings in great condition don't just retain their value. They increase in value! In fact, when I asked my daughter whether she'd prefer to get one of my Van Cleef & Arpels rings or the equivalent in money when I finally say goodbye to this world, she said she'd take the ring any day! Why? Money has a way of being spent but a designer ring just keeps gaining in value. Wise girl that one.
The inquiries regarding that ring, just listed last night, have already started coming in. Of course. It's the "early bird that catches the worm" or as is more appropriate here, "first in, best dressed". Well no doubt about that last adage: whoever jumps in and buys this magnificent TIFFANY ring will certainly be one of the best dressed and most envied ladies around. Will that be you?
