Op Art 1960s Ruby Emerald Diamond Ring
Jewelry of the 1960s had an ornate rich look. Designers took advantage of abstract form and a florid contrast of texture, color and materials. Typically this vivid use of color was achieved using a palette of precious gems.
Almost the shape of a Buckminster Fuller geodesic dome or “Bucky ball”, this 14k rose gold ring flashes with a veritable kaleidoscope of red, green and gold. Based on a six pointed star, the matrix of the ring is centered with a flowerhead cluster of six (6) round faceted natural emeralds around a central brilliant cut diamond of an estimated .15 carats.
Points of the star are accented with six (6) more of these envious emeralds for a total estimated emerald weight of .60 carats. Six trefoils consisting of three (3) rectangular faceted natural rubies with a total estimated weight of .84 carats are grouped between each arc of the star. A spade motif embellishes sculptural open work shoulders.
Date: Circa 1965.
Measurements: 13/16 of an inch (2 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 5/8 of an inch (1.5 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 8.8 grams (5.7 dwt).
