In the late 1930s, Parisian jewellery houses in particular developed a style of Art Deco known to us today as the "retro style". It was distinguished by warm gold tones and expansive geometric shapes from the cool, flat designs in diamond-studded platinum that had characterized the decade before. This new style soon spread around the world - film stars such as Marlene Dietrich with her legendary ruby bracelet made it famous worldwide. This ring is also a representative of this sophisticated style. The rectangular ring face is set crosswise to the finger and bears a precious trimming. A dark blue, almost black sapphire is set in the centre, contrasting with the diamonds surrounding it. A total of 20 old-cut diamonds weighing a combined total of about 0.60 ct are set close together here, bathing the ring face in white light, even though they are set entirely in yellow gold. An ornamental gallery raises the stones slightly above the finger. The beautiful ring is very well preserved. It beautifully illustrates how the ethereal designs of the 1920s could become the powerful abstractions of the Midcentury.
