Magic, Mystery & Wisdom: Art Deco Diamond Owl Ring
The firm of Jones and Woodland were part of the Newark, New Jersey jewelry design and manufacturing empire spanning the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. From 1896 until 1938 (when the company was purchased by the notable Krementz and Co.) the firm created platinum and 18k gold jewelry with the “finest quality colored gemstones”.
The Art Deco period presented jewelry designers with inspirational choices ranging from the whimsical to the divine. Circa 1920, this 14k yellow gold ring is an example of just one of the wise decisions that Jones and Woodland made. Finely rendered details, such as the circle of feathers around the riveting forward facing eyes set with rose cut diamond, the tufts in the ears and hawk-like beak create a figural representation of a knowing look on its heart shaped face. Adding to the illusion is the patterning on the shank giving the appearance of the owl’s talons. Signed Jones and Woodward, a collectible piece of the Newark renaissance.
