Art Deco Diamond Emerald Ring
Art Deco jewelry can best be characterized as adornment for the body focused on clean geometry and form as well as color. It was appreciated as a thoroughly modern style – as one which was perhaps in direct opposition to Art Nouveau.
Here an open work expression of a navette or marquise shape employs platinum, diamonds and emeralds. Clean lines and simplicity bring a pair of old European cut diamonds to the forefront. Estimated at .44 and .36 carats, their color is H-K with a clarity of SI1-3. At their side, two (2) smaller old European cuts add to their pizzazz.
A curved platinum embrace of twenty-four (24) single cut diamonds (.29 carats) is interspersed with two groupings of emeralds. One is natural and seven (7) are synthetics, typical and accurate for the time period. Bold color along with sublime luxury go hand in hand. Mille grain accenting and careful attention to detail make for a fine example of a period work of jewelry art with a total estimated diamond weight of 1.09 carats for the ring.
