About Details History
This outstanding Art Deco ring is crafted in platinum. The impressive 1.14ct round brilliant cut (I-J/SI2) at the center sits within a softly squared head studded with single cut diamonds. The north and south sides feature a chic fringe of diamond baguettes. Each shapely, diamond-encrusted shoulder echoes the decoration at the face with a progression of baguettes and smattering of bead-set single cuts. Absolutely spectacular. This ring comes with an EGL diamond certificate and appraisal for the center stone.

ART DECO (1915 – 1940) Art Deco is highly recognizable for its minimalism and futurism. Simultaneous art movements—Cubism, Bauhaus—informed the geometric style, along with “exotic” foreign influences like the Ballet Russe. Motifs like ziggurats and sunbursts, stripped of visual clutter, conveyed the optimism of an increasingly technological world. In jewelry, the predominant use of white metals let colorful gems take center stage. Stones that were opaque and true in color, like lapis lazuli, onyx, jade, coral, and opal were worked into designs alongside more precious and brilliant gems, like diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. Extra-long beaded necklaces and tasseled “sautoirs” followed the narrow flapper silhouette. The baguette cut was an Art Deco innovation, and the decade saw increased use of other angular diamond cuts, like the precise caliber cut and the emerald cut. Synthetic gems, like sapphires, were celebrated as a scientific marvel. Marcel Tolkowsky, 21 years old at the time, published the design for the round brilliant cut in 1919.
