The "vegetable" ring type first appeared in Germany in the late 1920s and formed a warm, playful counter-design to the cool, graphic geometry of 1920s Art Deco. This type of ring got its name from its decoration with applied vines and leaves, from which pearls and gemstones peek out like ripe fruit. Those golden vines and leaves wind here on the oval, magnificently designed ring face forged by hand. Embedded between them are wonderful hand-cut gemstones: First and foremost, a wonderful, large green emerald weighing about two carats with gorgeous transparency and color. The stone comes from Colombia, since time immemorial the origin of the best emeralds and is shaped in the classic emerald cut. An early cultured pearl supports the magnificent impression of the green gemstone with its delicate melting. Four historic old-cut diamonds are sparklingly set in between. The setting shines like colorful fruits and flowers in a precious golden garden. A simple, sturdy ring band holds the fanciful centerpiece and makes the ring wearable. Hand-forged in the 1930s, the ring thrives on its exuberant, almost wildly rampant ornamentation and the quality of its trim. Thus, it is both a glimpse into the richness of nature (also via the beautiful setting of gemstones) and yet is an artistic artifact. It is very well preserved and shows a maker's mark of the letters "AI" inside. Some jewelry of this type can be found e.g. in Christianne Weber: Schmuck der 1920er und 1930er Jahre in Deutschland, Stuttgart 1990, which helps us to date also our ring. A detailed expert opinion of the DeGeB is included with this ring.

The 1920s brought a new style to the world of jewellery with Art Deco: geometric abstractions, luxurious materials and luxurious fittings were sought after and supplied by goldsmiths in Vienna, London and Paris as well as their counterparts in Berlin and overseas. In the years that followed, the style continued to evolve. The original fascination with clear geometries was now mixed with a new enthusiasm for bizarre, natural, irregular and surprising designs.
