Story

The transition from one style era to another is not always clear. Characteristics and designs may “bleed over” from one to the next. This particular 14k yellow gold ring gives us just a hint of what the next two decades had to offer.

Sensual styling and luscious curves include an organic ambiance in a solitaire diamond ring. An old European cut diamond of an estimated .70 carats (H-I color; VS1-2 clarity) is held in a languid embrace of rough cut claws of 14k yellow gold. Deeply patterned mount and sides provide a form of asymmetry within symmetry of scrolling foliage…precursors of the restless and dynamic energy-laden designs of the later years of Art Nouveau.

Date: Circa 1890.
