1930s Art Deco Diamond Platinum Ring
The years which comprise the Art Deco era vary with any number of sources. Sometimes cited as the years between the world wars, even the term “Art Deco” was coined not in the early decades of the 20th century but in the 1960s. Derived from the 1925 Paris L'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, the style was then referred to as “Art Moderne” or “Modernistic”.
The period itself may be divided into the early (1915 to 1929) and the late (1930 – 1941) period. Although an overlap of specific characteristic defined both intervals, certain style differences emerged. The later time frame made a shift to a mono and bi chromatic color scheme, a more horizontal profile and a chunkier, wider and bolder interpretation of design.
This later platinum Art Deco ring emphasizes the more horizontal form while still retaining the beloved geometric elements. Albeit a sense of linearity was maintained,yet there was movement towards the integration of a more curved and sculpted three-dimensional silhouette. With an old European cut diamond of about 40 points (J-K color; VS1-SI clarity) at the center and ten (10) single cut accent diamonds of .15 carats (for a total estimated diamond weight of .55 carats), the rounded contours provide a somewhat softer more feminine ring than the early days of Art Deco.
