Pretty in Pink

Playful ring with pink tourmaline & pink sapphires, Birmingham 1933

This ring, which has been crafted from high-carat gold, features an unusual setting. A radiant pink tourmaline shines in its centre, its facets further emphasising its colour. Two pink sapphires are set at the sides, each separated from the center stone by a rose diamond. They have a cooler, slightly bluish pink hue. The hallmarking inside the ring bar shows that the ring was presented to the Birmingham Assay Office in 1933 - for this reason it also bears the special George V Silver Jubilee Hallmark, which was only used between 1933 and 1935. Although fashion at this time already favoured the cool geometric designs of Art Deco, the ring still shows a nostalgic commitment to the range of shapes and warm colours of the late Victorian period. Curved volutes and openwork ornamentation swing along above and below the gemstones. We were able to discover the ring in Berlin. It is very well preserved and with its extraordinary setting, which we have never had before in this combination, a wonderful collector's item that is easy to wear.
