Story

Coming to fruition around the waning years of the Victorian 1900s, the Arts and Crafts movement is more of a philosophy than a decorative style. It was in essence, a reaction to the overly mechanized and standardized culture which had emerged as a result of industrialization. The movement embraced beautiful design and the appreciation of the individual craftsman’s propensity for simplicity and the acceptance of imperfection. Inspiration came from representational, symbolic or abstract organic forms and nature. There was a preference for employing the more “humble” materials such as brass and silver and semi-precious gems such as moonstone, lapis and turquoise.

In all its Arts and Crafts glory is an impressive ring of 14k yellow gold featuring a large pyrope garnet of an estimated 11.05 carats cut en cabochon (thanks to ACM designer John Ruskin). Luscious and ripe, the prodigious gem is well suited to its simple and cleanly designed golden mount enrobed in floral and botanical motifs of straightforward rendering. The back of the shank is a vision of intertwined vines.

Date: Circa 1900.
