Art Deco mundane ring with pearl & diamonds, around 1930

After the flat, strictly geometric designs of the 1920s, jewellery was allowed to become more plastic again around 1930 and its shapes softer and more curved. Whereas previously rings in the form of elongated shields had been in demand, people now preferred to wear rings with a front at right angles to the finger. This ring is a typical example of a ring from the 1930s. Still fully committed to the white aesthetics of Art Deco, its front has already turned 90 degrees and dares to take on more plastic and rounded shapes. A large pearl with a creamy lustre takes centre stage on the ring head, which is covered in platinum and structured with shadow gaps and milgrain settings. Around it, the cool, gleaming diamonds cluster in rhythmic formation. A narrow ring band adjoins the airy yellow gold gallery. The ring thus beautifully combines the characteristics of advanced Art Deco: delicate in its craftsmanship and colourfulness, yet powerful in design and format. It is excellently preserved.
