Elegant cocktail ring with aquamarine in gold & platinum, circa 1935

The aquamarine was named after its color, lat. aqua marina, sea water. It enjoyed particular popularity in the late Art Deco of the 1930s, when the cool, water-blue stone was popularly set in warm contrast to bright yellow gold. After the flat, strictly geometric designs of the 1920s, jewellery was allowed to become more sculptural again around 1930 and its shapes softer and more curved. In addition, playful ornaments from past times were often used. Here, for example, curved vines and leaves wind around the central, clear and austere cut stone of about six carats and also provide a stylistic contrast to the color contrast. At the four corners of the ring face, small octagonal diamonds glitter in platinum settings and stand out white against the gold mesh. The ring is in very good condition and is a very typical 1930s jewel, both in its shape and choice of materials. Since jewellery with these stylistic characteristics also liked to be made as bracelets and necklaces, such a ring is also an excellent complement.
