Art Deco panther ring

Here is an original 1920's Art Deco era ring in the form of a panther that looks sensational no matter which finger that it is worn on and will certainly be admired every time that it is worn.
The panther was a common design in many Art Deco pieces of jewellery and was most famously embraced by Cartier during the Art Deco period when this ring was also made.

Made in 18ct yellow gold, the panther is the real star of the show and it is all highlighted with the combination of rubies and diamonds.
Sitting atop of the rubies and diamonds, there are a total of 6 vibrant square cut red rubies and six rose cut diamonds with a single cut diamond in the centre.
The rubies total 0.09 carats and the diamonds 0.06 carats as well and are set in a wonderful geometric style typical of the Art Deco period of the 1920's.

From left to right, the ring measures 14.6mm across by 12.3mm and the panther combined with the rubies and diamonds truly make this such a spectacular and unique Art Deco ring to be treasured forever.

What are rose cut diamonds?

Like the name implies, the rose cut diamond resembles a rose bud, comprising of a flat base with a number of triangular facets arranged in rows above each other, meeting at a sharp point in the centre.

First manufactured in India at the end of the 15th Century, this cut was perfected at the diamond cutting workshops in Antwerp and Amsterdam, and was very popular during most of the 16th and 17thcenturies.


Example of the rose cut diamond from the side and the top.

Because the base of the diamond was flat, stones were often foiled back to improve the brilliance of the stone. This was achieved by applying foils or tints to the base of the stone.

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.
