Jewel of the day: 1930s Diamond Shamrock Ring
You could go for emeralds today, St. Patrick’s Day, but there’s a reason the saying is that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Offered by San Francisco-based Lang Antiques, they suggest this instead: “A tantalizing trio of bright-white, pear-shaped diamonds, totaling 3.00 carats, produces a powerful punch, not to mention the luck of the Irish, in this truly gorgeous three-leaf clover ring, handcrafted in platinum – circa 1930. The resplendent ultra-sparklers fan diagonally outward from a .30 carat European-cut diamond and diamond-set stem for an explosive, yet elegant, effect. 3.35 carats total diamond weight. The ring measures an impressive 3/4 inch across and is currently a ring size 6 1/4+.”
You’ll also have to show a lot of green to buy it – it sells for USD$19,525. Lucky you – and happy St. Paddy’s!
