14K Gold Mid-Century Modern Pearl & Diamond Bypass Ring
This stunning bypass ring features two stunning cultured pearls and several diamonds. The ring is made in the 1950s and has a classic and elegant style. Bypass rings such as this one were popularized in the Victorian era and quickly became the ideal ring for an engagement. These rings are made up of bands that overlap and part, rather than being a simple continuous line. The distinct and modern style of this ring alongside such a beautiful selection of gemstones make this piece a treasure.
The pearls at the center measure approximately 9mm and 10mm; each of the diamonds around the pearls ranges from 2mm to 4.5mm in size. The cultured pearls have a beautiful nacre to them and are well matched, with a superb glow and no pitting. They have a nice white to creamy color. The diamonds are round, brilliant and range from VS2-SL1 in clarity. They are a G/H in color. The diamonds have a total karat weight of 0.75. The yellow gold band is 14 karats, and it is marked on the interior of the band. The ring is a size 4.5 and can be easily re-sized by a professional jeweler.
