Platinum is the purest of all the precious metals used in jewellery and was a very popular choice during the Art Deco period of the 1920’s to 1940’s thanks for its pure white colour and ability to be drawn into a very fine wire while all the time retaining its strength resulting in some superb quality detail in jewellery such as this magnificent Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring.
Straight from the Art Deco era of the 1920’s, this sapphire and diamond ring was all hand made in platinum and made in such an amazing design.
The top is set with a hexagonal blue sapphire that looks perfect set in the centre and then surrounded by 32 diamonds.
The shape of the sapphire is so wonderful and measures 0.70 carats in weight.
Like many Art Deco rings, it is not simply a matter of the diamonds simply being set around the centre stone, it is the fine detail and pierce work.
All the diamonds are milgrain set which is the bezel setting around the diamonds, and then with the detailed crimping around the setting which was a typical style used during the Art Deco era.
The top of the ring measures 4.2cm in diameter and sits so well on any finger.
On each side, the band is set with a further 3 diamonds to add that extra elegance and sparkle.
In total the diamonds weigh 0.32 carats and sparkle wonderfully.
Even looking under the ring will show the quality and attention to detail that you can only find in handmade jewellery made from platinum and can never be as fine in detail in cast made jewellery even made from gold.
This is such an amazing example of an Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring that looks spectacular on the finger.
