Art Deco White & Yellow Gold Diamond Ring
Jewelry designers in the later years of the Art Deco period shifted their focus from a vertical to a more horizontal profile. This example highlights that change with the use of both white and yellow gold of 14k. An old European cut diamond of an estimated .25 carats (I-J color; SI1 clarity) has been set within a square mount of white gold. This “white on white” theme creates a visual image of a diamond more dramatic and much larger than its actual size. The yellow gold shank and accents make for a lovely contrast with the white gold floral and heart motif details.
Date: Circa 1935.
Measurements: 1/4 of an inch (0.7 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) height off the finger. Weight of 2.0 grams (1.3 dwt).
Ring Size: Just shy of US 6-1/2 (UK M; Int. Dia. 17; 53 mm; Japan 12) and can be easily sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Hallmarks: “14k”; maker's mark, partially legible with a “K” and possibly a “B”.
Condition: Excellent; a few tiny edge chips only visible with magnification.
Note: Diamond has not been removed from mount to preserve the integrity of the setting. Diamond weight has been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weight. Grading has been done in situ and also may vary if stone is removed.
