Here is an Art Deco aquamarine ring made in the 1920's that is just stunning and will so easily suit any finger and any occasion and always stand out thanks to the magnificent deep blue colour coming from the aquamarine. Whereas it is more common to get aquamarine with a lighter colour which is of course fine, the deep colour of this aquamarine really makes it stand out as does the incredibly elegant and refined setting. The aquamarine measures 1.50 carats and measures 9.4mm by 8.1mm across and is set in a handmade setting of 18 carat yellow gold and platinum. The way the platinum claws elegantly come up and hold and support the aquamarine seem to grasp it from the air and pull it down and support it on the yellow gold band. This is a wonderful and beautiful example of a genuine Art Deco ring from the 1920's, that is so stunning and will always be loved and admired. Stock# ES8340 Circa: 1920 $Sold
Here is a very beautiful sterling silver opal doublet ring attributed to Rhoda Wager, and dating from the 1930's. Rhoda Wager was born in England in 1875 and moved to Australia and set up her own jewellery workshop producing pieces of jewellery in the form of rings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches between 1921 to 1946 and here we have a fabulous ring that can easily be attributed to her. Even though her rings were not signed with her mark, she had such a distinct style with her designs and her somewhat "signature hallmark" of the double bands put on rings such as with this one here, that this can so easily be attributed to her. Measuring 18.6mm across by 19.5mm, in the centre is a gorgeous opal doublet that has such amazing and intense spectral colours emanating from it that looks more and more beautiful the closer you get to it. With a wonderful vine design wrapping around the border leading to her signature double band, this is a wonderful piece of Australian jewellery by one of Australia's more sought after jewellers.

It is so lovely to find early Australian jewellery from Rhoda wager, and here is a very beautiful and rare signed Rhoda Wager silver brooch dating from the 1930's that measures an astonishing 9.2cm in length. Rhoda Wager was one of Australiaâ€™s leading jewellers of the early 20th century, producing beautiful pieces often in silver that had a very natural flowing style as can be seen here in this brooch. Made in sterling silver, it is set with mabe pearl in the centre. Also known as blister pearls, these are produced as a section of the oyster shell itself, rather than from an irritant inside the oyster which produces a traditional pearl. The lovely lustre on this mabe pearl is still so vibrant and accentuates the silver beautifully. Measuring 1.7cm wide at the centre, the reverse side is signed â€śWagerâ€ť and this is really a way that you can wear a piece of Australian history that is not only important, but equally as beautiful. This is a lovely and hard to find signed brooch by the famous Australian artist Rhoda Wager. Stock# ES8220 Maker: Rhoda Wager Circa: 1940 $Sold
