Art Deco rings are so highly sought after at the moment and here we have a magnificent 1930's Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring of both exceptional quality and design.
Platinum is the purest of all the precious metals used in jewellery and is the purest white colour and incredible in its ability to be drawn into a fine wire for detail, all the white being strong enough to support gemstones, in this case the centre sapphire and surrounding sapphires.
Set into the centre is a vivid 1.20 carat sapphire set surrounded by the most intricate pierce worked design which is highlighted by twenty European cut diamonds that total 1.68 carats. Along the edge of the sapphire as well as the setting around the diamonds, it has been finished with the millgrain setting which can be seen as the elegant crimping along the edge often seen in Art Deco jewellery. Then there is the exquisite pierce working on the top which highlights both the beauty of platinum as well as hand made jewellery from this beautiful era.
The rectangle section itself measures 19.4mm by 13mm and leads to the band, with each side set with another European cut diamond that adds another 0.08 carats to the diamond weight. The total diamond weight for this ring is 1.76 carats and all sparkle magnificently.
Even the band has been finely hand engraved and turning the ring upside down reveals exquisite detail and craftsmanship that shows the quality of this ring.
Truly a fine and elegant ring, nothing quite beats a genuine Art Deco ring adorning your finger in the knowledge that there is not another one exactly the same like it anywhere in the world.
Sapphire and diamond ring.
Sapphire and diamond ring made in the Art Deco era in platinum. This Art Deco ring was entirely hand made in platinum. It is set with a natural sapphire and European cut diamonds.
When was the Art Deco period?
It is generally accepted that the Art Deco era was from 1920 until 1940. Having said that, there are a few publications that will say that it started at the end of World War One in 1918, and lasted until the 1950's. However as the Art Deco movement is defined by its style, rather than the reign of a monarch, a few years one way or the other shouldn't be the argued.
