The jewellers in France have long been regarded as innovators of design and style especially during such periods as the Art Deco and Art Nouveau eras such as this delightful antique Art Nouveau era diamond ring from the 1900’s.
Art Nouveau jewellery is easily identified as having very free flowing elegant designs which can easily be seen in this ring.
The Art Nouveau era came in towards the end of the 19th century and lasted up until 1914 and is a great snap shot in time in both the history of jewellery making and design.
Hand made in 18ct yellow gold, the diamonds are set in silver as white gold and platinum was not yet used and is very characteristic of the Art Nouveau rings of this era.
The ring is set with 3 diamonds with 2 more on each side and measures 12mm from the top diamond to the bottom diamond and being nice and flat sits so well on the finger.
Bearing the French hallmarks on the band the style of this ring alone is very typical of what the French jewellers of this era were producing, and this Art Nouveau diamond ring is sensational to look at and admire.
