Art Deco Signed Belais Diamond Sapphire Ring
From the inner recesses of the chemistry labs of the manufacturing and design house of the Belais Brothers of New York comes this 18k white gold ring. In 1917 the Belais Brothers was the first American company to develop the formula for white gold. So popular was this formulation that early ads used the term “Belais” to refer to white gold.
Here in all its glorious 18k white gold is a staple of Art Deco design featuring a centered old European cut diamond of an approximate .20 carats within a hexagonal setting. A brace of triangular cut synthetic sapphires adorn the sides as floral open work, arcs and other geometric forms embellish the ethereal mount.
Date: Circa 1925.
Measurements: 1/4 of an inch (0.6 cm) in length north and south on the hand by 1/4 of an inch (0.6 cm) in width and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) off the finger. Weight of 2.3 grams (1.4 dwt).
