Gold ring in art nouveau shapes with old cut diamond from our workshop

Art Nouveau, with its curved lines and forms inspired by the plant world, revolutionised the world of jewellery in the years around 1900. In search of a new language of form that had nothing to do with the ornamentation of past eras, which was perceived as old-fashioned and outmoded, artists looked to nature for inspiration from flora and fauna. Here they hoped to find the forms that would enable the renewal of art. In keeping with the spirit of optimism of those years, it was in particular budding, blossoming plants that were the inspiration for the new jewels. The design of this piece of jewellery from our workshop is based on rings as they were worn in the early years of the 20th century. A delicate golden tendril wraps around the finger, crosses over and ends at the top in a shiny blossom formed by a diamond. In keeping with the ring's Art Nouveau inspiration, we have chosen an old-cut diamond that was cut in the years around 1900 and is used here in a secondary setting. The diamond has a weight of 0.18 ct and shows those individual proportions that make up the charm of antique gemstones and make each one unique. Set in the old handcrafting technique, the setting of the gemstone is lined with delicate mille handles. On the petals of the flower, two more rose-cut diamonds are embedded in the richly shining yellow gold. The ring's high-quality materials and flat design make it suitable for daily wear. An ideal jewel for anyone who wants to celebrate a new beginning for two!
