The shoulders are "brushed" or textured in a cross-hatch design. The inside of the finger is polished gold, which would make for easy sizing. The diamond is set in white gold, to showcase its brilliance. It's set in sturdy fishtail prongs at the corners, and there's some (worn) milgrain detail around the face. The diamond is either a transitional cut or round brilliant, measuring 6.4 x 3.86 mm deep.
It calculates to 1.00 ct using a mm to carat weight gemstone calculator which we use for all of our mounted gemstones. It is a bright, fiery diamond.
The gemologist grades this diamond as I color and I1 clarity. It's quite a generally clean diamond--the I1 grading is for basically one inclusion which you may be able to see in the first photo (comes down from top edge about about 2 mm and does not reach the center) --this is NOT a diamond full of black carbon that someone just wants to get rid of--it's a NICE STONE!! Being set in the square head makes it look even a little larger than it actually is. The face of this ring measures 7/16" at the face, and tapers to 3/16" at the inside of the finger. It is hallmarked 14K with a maker's mark of an "H", is a size 9.25 and weighs a hefty 9.8 grams.
It looks like it's been sized once, and can be sized again by any competent jeweler. This ring is in excellent vintage condition.
