Description
A Gruen blue river guaranteed diamond ring. Fashioned for the Fifth Avenue Platinum Shops (15W 47th NY). Flower design with 7 small diamonds.


Model: diamond ladies ring with Cathedral Setting
Period: 1927-1932
Material: 14K white gold. River diamonds.
Size: flower H= 9mm, W=9m. Ringsize 6.
Marked: gruen

Other: one of the old terms for the color grade was River. This was for al diamond found in a rivers bed (or alluvial deposits). Before the GIA color grading terminology for diamonds the term “bluewhite” was used to describe the finest highly transparent clear color. In today’s GIA color the River is an E or F (colourless group). Original prices of these rings were $50 or up.

Beautiful Jenneke! Wonder if they made gents rings? Did this one have a case?

It does have a box... but not the original one.

And yes, maybe they did make them for gents. See here. Only one picture.

I'm not a jewelry buff, but for that amount of money I could see myself wearing a Gruen ring. And I haven't seen my original wedding band in years (been wearing my grandfather's for a long time). I could almost talk myself into this. Except I know my wife would absolutely hate me wearing a ring with a big honking diamond (real or fake). She's kind of sexist when it comes to accessories.
