Art Deco Peridot Diamond Ring
Sometimes referred to as “evening emerald", the peridot is a volcanic stone treasured by native Hawaiians who believe it to be the tears of Pele, the Goddess of Fire. As far back as 1500 BCE the Egyptians associated the gem with the great deity of the sun.
A rich and glorious color of green touched by a hint of gold, a cushion cut rectangle of peridot weights in at 1.8 carats. Surrounding the peridot is a border of sixteen (16) old single cut diamonds which light up the centered gem as spotlights on a stage. A trio of old single cuts on each side adds the perfect balance to an attention grabbing finger ring. The total estimated diamond weight for the twenty-two (22) old single cuts is 1 carat or just a tad less. Set in a 14k yellow gold mount with platinum top.
Date: Circa 1920.
Measurements: 9/16 of an inch (1.4 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 1/4 of an inch (0.6 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 5.3 grams (3.4 dwt).
Ring Size: US 9-1/4 (UK S; Euro or Int. Circum. 60.1 mm; Int. Dia. 19.2 mm; Japan over 18) and easily can be sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Condition: Excellent; evidence of previous resizing visible with magnification; two diamonds likely replaced with later single cut diamonds only evident with a loupe; one small diamond chipped, a few with slight wear apparent with magnification.
Note: Stones were not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. All weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
