Square Art Deco diamond ring

The design of this ring makes it both sit and look so elegant on the finger, and sitting nice and flat will make it comfortable to wear all the time where it will no doubt always be admired.

Hand made in 18 carat yellow and white gold in the 1930's, this ring is a cluster design with a difference. To begin with there is a cluster of four European cut diamonds in the centre and then so elegantly this is separated from the outer border that is set with a further twelve European cut diamonds. These diamonds total 0.48 carats and to make the setting even more special, there is a millgrain border around the diamonds which can be seen as an elegant crimping design like on the edge of a coin. Even something as simple as this elevates the ring and adds to its charm and allure. The top of the ring measures 14.5mm across by 14.1mm, making it perfect to be worn on its own where it will always be complimented on.

Then on each side is one rose cut diamond that adds an extra amount of sparkle and elegance, completing the look perfectly.
This is a wonderful example of an Art Deco ring from the glorious Art Deco period.

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.

When was the Art Deco era?

Broadly speaking the Art Deco era was from 1920 until 1940. There will be some people and publications that may state that it started after World War I in 1918, and lasted until 1950, but as there was no reigning monarch to dictate an actual start-finish time such as the Victorian era, the general concusses is from the 1920's through to the 1940's.
