Jewelry History: Art Deco Sapphire Diamond Ring
Extreme geometric shapes entered into the consciousness of the artisan masters of Art Deco jewelry (1920-1935). Change in design from one era to another is often a result of economic, scientific or industrial advances. For the movement referred to as Art Moderne, later labeled Art Deco, the initial challenge was to vertically reach the heavens in a streamlined modernistic form.
Elegant and refined, this ring of 14k yellow gold features the cool blue of an oval faceted natural sapphire of an estimated .48 carats centered in a navette configuration. Studded all around the sapphire, twenty-two (22) old European cut diamonds with an estimated 1.12 carat total (I-K color range; VS1-SI1 clarity) add their icy cool composure to a sophisticated piece of jewelry history.
Date: Circa 1920.
Measurements: 1 inch (2.5 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 3.9 grams (2.5 dwt).
