American Beauty

Antique platinum ring with 0.43 ct diamond solitaire, USA circa 1925

The 1920s brought a new style to the world of jewelry with Art Deco: Geometric abstractions, precious materials and the most luxurious fittings were sought after and supplied by goldsmiths in Paris, London and Vienna as well as by their colleagues in Berlin and overseas. One particular type of jewelry was especially popular: so-called "white jewels" combined white diamonds, platinum or white gold to create a crystalline, cool and particularly elegant impression; supernaturally seductive, a little worldly and thus especially luxurious. This Art Deco ring from the USA is also magnificent and at the same time airy and playful. Created overseas in the Golden Twenties, the ring presents a radiant old-cut diamond weighing about 0.43 ct as the only gemstone in its center. The platinum ring is finely and intricately crafted, with its design language showing echoes of the Rococo style, with curved ornaments and openwork latticework. However, these historical motifs are modified in the spirit of its time of origin and reveal the influence of straight Art Deco, which found its most beautiful expressions especially in the USA. A pretty ring that came to us from the South of Germany - delicate and stylish.
