Spectacular Art Deco diamond ring by Cartier with approx. 1.80 ct diamonds
Even today, the name Cartier is synonymous with luxurious jewelry made from the finest materials and with the best workmanship. However, the cornerstone of the Paris-based company's success was laid in the years between the world wars, when Cartier's Art Deco designs made it the most popular jewellery manufacturer among the aristocracy and the international jet set. The ring here is such a hand-forged piece of jewellery, a statement piece, an object with history that tells of the dreams of another world. The ring, engraved inside with the ancient signet "Monture Cartier", was made by Cartier in Paris around 1940 and speaks the design language of luxury and elegance of those years quite unbroken. Forged from solid 750 gold, a large blossom swings up from the ring rail to radiate with a rich diamond setting. A large cushion-cut diamond marks the center of the design and also the center of the bloom. Eight smaller diamonds in this same cut, a typical cut before the introduction of the modern brilliant cut, are set around the center stone. Set in white gold, the stones shine in glistening, bright, dreamlike light. The cut of the stones, the masterful workmanship and the formal language of the design make this ring an unmistakable work of the noblest provenance. The ring is beautifully preserved and comes with a Cartier case. A dream gift, absolutely to be worn immediately!
In the mid-1920s, a new style conquered the world from America, Art Deco. A design language inspired by the streamlined shapes of street cruisers, the vertiginous lines of skyscrapers and the dynamism of jazz, it brought together luxurious materials in a completely new form. Soon at home in Paris, not only did architects and craftsmen begin to take up the new style, but the goldsmiths of the great houses also began to capture the spirit of the new age in new forms. World-famous here are not least the luxurious orders of Edward VIII for his wife Wallis Simpson, who ordered such sensational pieces from Cartier in Paris as the large flamingo brooch, which was recently auctioned at Sotheby's.
