Here is such a beautiful and elegant 18 carat yellow gold and platinum Art Deco emerald and diamond ring, that would so easily suit any finger and occasion, including making a wonderful engagement ring. Quite often Art Deco jewellery took an existing design and altered it in a subtle way such as this ring here. Taking the traditional cluster design, not only is it more of a squared shape as opposed to round, but the sides have the most wonderful hour glass style shape to it. Measuring 8.2mm by 8.1mm, it leads to the yellow gold band which itself is so elegant and compliments the design perfectly. Sitting proud in the centre is a vibrant natural emerald that measures 0.16 carats and has not only a perfect green colour to it, but exceptional clarity allowing you to see right through the emerald. Highlighted by a border of ten single cut diamonds that total 0.10 carats, the edge of the setting has the millgrain finish which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge. The design, the emerald and diamonds, and the quality of hand making all come together to create a very beautiful Art Deco ring. Stock# ES8319 Circa: 1920 $Sold.

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.
