Floral Art Nouveau Ring With Diamonds & Sapphires, Berlin Circa 1900

A fresh flowering took hold of the arts in the years around 1900. The new forms of Art Nouveau enriched art and the decorative arts with decorative designs never seen before. Centers quickly emerged in Europe during these years, each taking a different approach to the expression of the new style. While in France the School of Nancy led the way and floral motifs were transformed into spectacular new art forms, on the Blue Danube the Wiener Werkstätte emerged with a stricter conception of ornamentation. Everywhere, total works of art were created that were to influence almost every area of human life. The ring here brings this awakening of the arts to the finger in sparkling form. Forged from 14-karat rose gold, the design presents itself as a flower blooming in white and blue. An old-cut diamond and a blue sapphire form its blossoms. The ring band itself is simple and understated. Towards the center, it fans out to present the delicate little plant. The sweeping lines of the design and its elegant asymmetry are typical of Art Nouveau designs of the years around 1900, and its sumptuous gemstones are equally in keeping with the spirit of the Belle Époque, which sought to shine in beauty. According to its hallmark, the ring was made in Germany for the jewelry dealer Wilhelm Müller, who ran his large store on Gertraudenstraße in Berlin.
