A Touch Of Glamour

Fantastic Art Deco Ring With A Single Carat Solitaire, Germany Circa 1930

More than just a touch of glamor exudes the present ring of the years around 1930 - and thus fulfills all expectations that can only be placed on a jewel of the Art Deco or a perfect engagement ring: In its center, the piece of jewelry presents a wonderfully sparkling historical old-cut brilliant-cut diamond as a solitaire. The wonderful stone has a weight of 1.028 carats and shows with beautiful color (get. White / K) a fiery play of light reflections as it is only to the diamond. We have commissioned an expert opinion on the center stone, which confirms its quality. Eight fine octagonal diamonds adorn the ring shoulders, which with its elegantly curved heights and sparkling millegrains is indebted to the formal language of late Art Deco. Made of 14-karat white gold, the result is a dreamy white jewel whose effect captivates. According to the hallmark, the impressive ring was made in Germany, we date it to around 1930. It has a flat design, so it can also be worn on a daily basis. We have been able to acquire the first-class piece here in Berlin.

With the invention of gaslight and then electric light at the end of the 19th century, glistening brightness suddenly filled the ballrooms of Europe. No more dark, yellow candlelight, but the white glow of hundreds of lamps made the ladies' jewellery shine and glitter as never before. No wonder that a new fashion also emerged as a result of these developments: white jewels made of diamonds and silver responded to the new lighting conditions and replaced the previous more colorful designs. In general, jewellery was increasingly richly set with sparkling gems to create an ever more luxurious and rich appearance. At the great balls in Paris, London and St. Petersburg, ever more magnificent diamond necklaces were presented, as well as tiaras, brooches and rings, all dreams in white diamonds. The name of the era, the Belle Époque, still indicates the goal of this period: To shine in beauty. But even in the following decades, the fashion for white jewellery remained current, right up to the Art Deco of the 1920s. Only the materials of the settings changed. The rapidly tarnishing silver was first replaced by platinum settings and later by jewellery made entirely of platinum or the white gold developed shortly before the World War.
