1940's Art Deco emerald and diamond ring

The proportions of this ring are just perfect, making it look even more elegant on the finger, and combine this with the fact that this is a genuine Art Deco ring of the 1940's, then you have a ring that will always be loved and cherished.

Hand made in 18 carat white gold and platinum by the jewellers Catanach's in the 1940's, in the centre sits a stunning natural Colombian emerald that measures0.30 carats, and displays not only such a fine green colour, but excellent transparency allowing you to see right through the emerald, and showing just why Colombian emeralds have always been regarded as the best in the world. Not only is the emerald bezel set, but it has a millgrain finish which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge of the setting which adds to the charm of the ring even further.

Surrounded by sixteen single cut diamonds, there are a further three more on each side, and all of these diamonds come together to total 0.22 carats, and highlight the emerald perfectly.

Measuring 8mm by 7.6mm across, this ring will so easily suit any finger, including making a wonderful engagement ring.

Where can I buy Art Deco engagement rings?

At Kalmar Antiques in the Queen Victoria Building, Sydney. For over thirty five years, Kalmar Antiques has always had a large range of genuine Art Deco engagement rings from the 1920's to the 1940's.

What are single cut diamonds?

These are small diamonds usually around 0.01 carats to 0.05 carats in size. They are often found on the shoulders of rings or surrounding a centre stone for example. While today modern technology will allow for a 0.01 carat diamond to have 58 facets and be a round brilliant cut diamond, single cut diamonds were used from the later part of the 19th Century up until around the 1930's-1940's. Commonly found with eight facets on the top (the crown) and eight facets on the bottom (the pavilion) these are sometimes found with total facets between 16 to 18.
