1.11 Carat Fancy Light Brown Vintage Diamond Engagement Ring
An exotic twist on a traditional vintage engagement ring. In place of a colorless, pallid center stone, this platinum solitaire glistens and glows with a light cognac, or champagne-colored European-cut diamond, weighing 1.11 carats. The scintillating stone is presented in a square box setting between slender rows of small twinkling single-cut diamonds leading to a sleek knife-edge ring shank. Currently ring size 7 3/4.
