Vintage Colombian Emerald & Diamond Engagement Ring

The Alyce Ring is a vintage Colombian emerald engagement ring from the Art Deco Era, circa 1925! This extraordinary platinum ring centers a GIA Certified Colombian emerald of approximately 1.95 carats with minor clarity enhancement. To each side of the emerald is a stunning Asscher cut diamond, each weighing approximately 1.00 carat of I-J color, VS1-2 clarity. To the north and south is a border of 15 bead-set diamonds, for a total of 30 diamonds. An additional 3 old European cut diamonds decorate the open metal work gallery on each side. The shoulders feature a bezel-set old European cut diamond with intricate metalwork and hand engravings that continue down the shank. The ring is size 6.5 and can be resized to some sizes.

Why We Love It

Big and bold with Art Deco written all over it! The Alyce ring is an extraordinary piece with a beautifully colored emerald and two gorgeously crisp Asscher cut diamonds! With its classic “hall of mirrors” faceting, the Asscher cut is the perfect complement to the emerald and the wide setting, establishing a lovely sense of balance! These three sizable stones are supported by an equally impressive setting featuring beautiful millegrain, leaf patterns, and open metalwork. Intricate and practically architectural in their precision, the details surrounding the stones are just incredible—and in amazing condition!

What To Look For In A Colombian Emerald

Did you know that South America produces the most emeralds worldwide? Colombia, in particular, accounts for 70-90 percent of the total global market. Brazil follows, along with Zambia. The emeralds from each country may vary in their hues, depending on the primary elements that give them their brilliant green color. Colombian emeralds tend to have traces of the element chromium, while Brazilian emeralds have traces of vanadium and Zambian emeralds have traces of iron.

But what should you look for when searching for the perfect stone? Color is the primary mark of quality. Look for a deep, even green—not too dark. Transparency typically increases the quality as well. Most emeralds contain inclusions. But this gives them their characteristic charm. These inclusions often create a garden-like appearance of moss. Some emeralds may be treated with oils to enhance their appearance for color or clarity as well.

When in doubt, just use this vintage Colombian emerald engagement ring for comparison! The Alyce ring is precisely what you want from a vintage emerald!

Need to see another angle or have additional questions about a ring? Feel free to Contact Us, and we'd be more than happy to help you!

Q: Can we see the rings in person?

A. Yes! We are available by appointment in NYC! Feel free to Contact Us or call us to set up an appointment! Read all about appointments here!

Q: Can my ring be resized?

A. Yes! We offer one complimentary resizing and MOST rings can be resized. Each additional resize is $80. Contact us to see if a certain ring can be sized to your preference! Keep in mind that resizing can take up to a 1 week. 

Q: Do you do custom work?

A. Yes! We do indeed do custom work when we source the center stone and we work exclusively with antique diamonds! We are not currently creating settings for stones that we do not source. The custom process starts at $10,000.

Q: What about diamond certification?

A. We wrote a whole page on your questions on diamond certification here!

Q: What is your return policy?

A. We are on a mission to pair people with their Dream Ring! If you are not happy with your purchase, we accept returns within 5 days of receiving the ring. Contact us and we will send you a return label to ship it back. Once we receive the ring in its original condition then we will issue a full refund. It may take a few days for the funds to show up in your account depending on your bank. Made-to-order rings are final sale. 

Q: What types of payments do you accept?

A. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, certified check, bank transfer, and Affirm. Important note if you are using a credit/debit card: Most banks impose a spending limit so you may have to contact them to have that changed for a purchase or to let them know that you are making a large purchase. We are also able to split payments over multiple cards! For this option, you can contact us and we can walk you through it!

Q: Will an "out of stock" item be restocked?

A: Unfortunately not! These are all one of a kind vintage and antique engagement rings so there is no other ring quite like it! Sometimes we can recreate a sold piece so Contact Us if there is a style that you can't get off your mind. For some of the vintage-inspired pieces, we can often recreate the ring with another antique diamond.

Q: Will you sell the setting without the center stone?

A: Unfortunately not! We do not sell only settings and we try to preserve the vintage integrity so we do not separate the diamonds from the setting. 

Q: What shipping do you offer?

A. We offer FREE overnight shipping Monday through Friday in the continental US. The package will come in a UPS or FedEx box and will not have our name on it in case it is a surprise! An adult signature is required upon delivery. The billing address on your order must match the shipping address. International shipments have a flat fee of $100 USD. Contact us for more information on international shipments.

Q: Do you offer payments plans?

A. We do offer layaway plans! Engagement rings can be a large purchase and we want you to be able to get the one that you want before someone else snatches up that one-of-a-kind piece! We offer up to 60-day installment plans and are happy to split payments over multiple cards if needed. Since layaway rings are taken off the market for extended periods of time, they are exchangeable but not returnable. Payments are non-returnable for payment plans. Contact us at info@victorbarbone.com to set up a plan that works for you!

Q: What countries do you ship to?

A. We ship to the United States, Canada, the UK, most European countries, Australia, as well as many other countries. Feel free to contact us to see if we ship to your country! There are often duties and taxes associated with importing jewelry so you can contact your country's customs agency for help in calculating that cost! Shipping on international shipments is a flat $100 USD fully insured.

If we haven't answered your question here, feel free to Contact Us or call us at 646-867-8772 and we will answer any questions you may have!
