French Art Deco ring set with a sapphire and diamonds

There is something so beautiful about a hand made ring from the Art Deco period of the 1920's, and this certainly applies to this magnificent ring.

Made entirely in platinum in France, the design along from all sides is so beautiful to admire, and sits so well on the finger.

In the centre is a 1.61 carat natural blue sapphire that has such a wonderful intense colour that is highlighted by having a European cut diamond set on each side that come together to total 1.06 carats. The shape of the setting adds so much charm and character to the ring, as done the beautiful scroll work on the sides that highlights the quality of this ring.

Measuring 58.8mm across by 25mm wide, no doubt this ring will suit any finger, including making a fabulous engagement ring.

Description

French Art Deco ring set with a sapphire and diamonds

This French Art Deco ring was hand made in platinum in the 1920's. This ring is set with two antique European cut diamonds.

What is a European cut diamond?

During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus, and was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. These stones can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone.

The culets became smaller, as it was realised that light could leak out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury with further modifications through the century. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
