Here is a stunning 1920s Art Deco diamond engagement ring that was hand made in platinum and showcases why genuine Art Deco engagement rings have never gone out of fashion, style or demand thanks to the wonderful designs. Sitting so elegantly on the finger, this ring is set with an early brilliant cut diamond in the centre that measures 0.42 carats and is F in colour and Si in clarity and then surrounded by twelve more. However so much thought went into these additional diamonds. As they were all cut by hand and there was not the technology to cut the smaller diamonds with more facets, looking closely at the ring you will see that the diamonds actually so finely graduate in size. Near the band on each side are two single cut diamonds and then going along the top and bottom graduating larger towards the top, are four European cut diamonds on each side. These additional diamonds total 0.52 carats and sparkle so well and are F to G in colour and Vs to Si in clarity. Measuring 9.2mm wide by 10.5mm this is such an elegant and perfect example of an Art Deco diamond engagement ring whose style has lasted through the ages. Stock# ES7201 Circa: 1920 $Sold

Albert or fob watch chains that they are also know as, were originally designed for a gentleman to hold a pocket watch at one end and the key to wind it at the other with the tee bar connected to the waistcoat. Years later when men stopped using pocket watches and started to wear wrist watches, women years later started to wear these around their neck where they are quite often seen today and here we have a very lovely and equally as rare 15ct gold antique Albert chain. 15ct gold was only used for a bit over 70 years until 1931 and this one has such a beautiful warm rose colour to it that looks so beautiful whether worn around the neck or attached to a pocket watch and the design itself is equally as beautiful. Quite often these are seen as half Alberts that only have one half of the chain, or they are double but simply too short to wear around the neck, but this one is a wonderful 51cm in length allowing it to sit perfectly around the neck. The design of the likes are just so beautiful and have such a tactile feel to it when you hold it in your hand let alone around your neck and feels so comfortable to wear all the time.
