Platinum Engagment Ring with Twinned Shoulders and Pear-Shaped Accents

$3,200.00
About Details History
A well-proportioned platinum Art Deco ring made in the late 30's or early 40's with a .55ct old mine cut diamond in the center (G-H VS2). The streamlined wing-shaped shoulders are studded with more diamonds, adding an additional .15ctw. My favorite part of the design: cute tear or pear-shaped settings nestled at the East and West sides. A little unusual, not too frilly or girly, and sparkly as hell. 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.
