Exquisite handmade platinum Belle Ãpoque diamond ring

The beautiful jewellery of the Belle Ãpoque era of the late 1800's through to the early 1900's has such a delicate and lace-like quality that can be seen here in this lovely exquisitely handmade platinum Belle Ãpoque diamond ring dating from the 1910 period.

this ring could only have been made in platinum as opposed to white gold, as platinum is the only precious metal that can be drawn into such a fine wire to create the wonderful design that you see, and still be strong enough to support the rings as a whole and the diamonds in this spectacular design.

In the centre of the ring is a lovely old European cut diamond that measures 0.36 carats and is then surrounded by a cluster of rose cut diamonds. Then typical of the Belle Ãpoque era, there are not just more additional rose cut diamonds in the ring, but they are so delicately set in a design that is simply breathtaking and a true testament to the quality of what can be achieved with hand making a ring such as this in platinum as well as the superb craftsmanship of the jeweller's during this fabulous era. In total there are seventy four of the rose cut diamonds that come together to total 0.66 carats and the ring measures 20mm wide by 26mm. Not only does this ring have a wonderful presence on the finger, but there is such a subtle curve to the design that allows it to curve perfectly over the finger.

And to complete the design, the ring leads down to a triple design band that adds that extra element of elegance.

From every angle, this is a stunning ring of exceptional quality and one that will always be admired every single time that it is worn.

Description

Exquisite handmade platinum Belle Époque diamond ring

The Belle Ãpoque era coincided with the late Victorian period of the 1890's through the Edwardian period of the early 1900's, and like the Art Nouveau period, stopped at the outbreak of World War One in 1914.

The Belle Ãpoque era and the Art Nouveau era coincide so closely together that it is actually quite hard to make a distinct separation between them. Making it even harder is the fact that the term Belle Ãpoque did not come into common language until after the period had finished.

Very similar to the Art Nouveau period of flowing lines, and although sometimes mimicking nature, Belle Ãpoque jewellery usually follows a more lace style, somewhat regal and elegant in design.

Another main difference between the two eras is that Belle Ãpoque jewellery tends to use more precious metals such as platinum and predominantly diamonds as opposed to other gemstones or materials as is seen in Art Nouveau jewellery.
