Rings made during the Art Deco period of the 1920's to the 1940's often took a traditional design, and altered it to a new fabulous design such as can be seen here in this very beautiful Art Deco diamond ring that was handmade in platinum the 1920's. Starting with the traditional diamond solitaire, the jeweller that created this ring set the early brilliant cut diamond with traditional claws to secure the ring. However looking close you will see that each of the claws are split into two making such an elegant feature to the ring. However it is what is under the diamond that makes such a statement to this ring and exemplifies the thought and detail that went into making this ring. Under the diamond is a wonderful scalloped plate design that not only makes this ring so unique but also reflects the light so well back through the diamond as well as into the eye. This diamond measures 0.51 carats and with this section underneath it, seems so much larger and will certainly catch the eye of all who see it. Bead set on each side are three single cut diamonds that total 0.06 carats and add the right amount of sparkle to emphasise and highlight the elegance and craftsmanship of this beautiful ring. Perfect as an engagement ring, it measures 7.2mm at the centre by 14.3mm from one end diamond across to the other end diamond. This ring shows why Art Deco jewellery is as popular today as when it was first made all those years ago. Stock# ES8377 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.

Made in a design that accentuates the finger so well, this antique emerald and diamond lozenge shaped ring dating from the 1890's will always get the attention that it rightly deserves. The ring was hand made in 18 carat yellow gold and sterling silver, and this was a combination used during this era as white gold was not yet invented, and platinum, although already discovered, was not used in jewellery until after the 1900â€™s like white gold. In the centre is such a wonderful quality natural Colombian emerald that has such a fine green colour and excellent transparency allowing you to see right through the emerald. For centuries Colombia has been the home to the finest emeralds in the world, and this one has the most gorgeous green colour to it. Measuring 0.30 carats, it is then surrounded by thirty four antique European cut diamonds that sparkle magnificently and highlight the beautiful emerald sitting proudly in the centre. These diamonds total 1.76 carats and day or night, there is little doubt that this ring will always be admired. Measuring 10.2mm across by 21.6mm in length, the shape and length accentuate the finger so well. So elegant in design and set with magnificent gemstones, this is a wonderful example of a late Victorian era ring that is perfect for all occasions. Stock# ES8308 Circa: 1890 $Sold.
