very clandestinely fumbled through his pockets to find the ring. As he asked her to be a partner for future adventures like this one, she started crying and exclaiming "yes, of course".
This solitaire style ring, named Greylands is of French or American design sometime in the mid-1930's. After the U.S. began its recovery from the Great Depression, Hollywood and all its glamour became the influence of this era of jewelry. This ring, as was the style, is three-dimensionally set so you can see all parts of the diamond.
