Cool elegance

Elegant Art Deco diamond ring in platinum, 1930s

Even today, we associate jewellery from the Art Deco period with timeless elegance: this may be due to the fine geometric shapes, the precision of the craftsmanship or the often rich diamond setting. But it is certainly also due in part to the cool colour scheme of the jewels of the time, as these are shown with preference in precious metals in icy white. This ring, for example, is made of an alloy of platinum and a small amount of iridium, which is particularly resistant and enjoyed great popularity, especially in the USA. With its white colour, the precious metal provides the perfect setting for a large old-cut diamond of around 0.93 ct, which is combined with other cuts in keeping with the style of the time. To the left and right, it is accompanied by a baguette diamond each, flanked above and below by 8/8 cuts. The setting is engraved with fine leaf elements that create additional light reflections. The ring is very well preserved and still eminently wearable today, nearly a century after its creation. With its detailed yet timeless design, it is also suitable as an engagement ring.
