Art Deco style ring with ruby & diamonds in white gold, circa 2020

A new style for a new time: In the midst of the ever faster changing world of the years after the world war, the artists and craftsmen of the Art Deco sought to find a new language of form, which would be appropriate to the new time. They rejected the formal language of Art Nouveau, which seemed to them too sweet, too transfigured, and sought geometric austerity. This alone seemed to them appropriate for the age of automobiles, skyscrapers and express trains. But who would have thought that this style, so new and modern at the time, would still be considered timeless today? Of all the historical styles that still inspire jewelry makers today, Art Deco is at the forefront. The ring here also subscribes to this concise design language. Its shield-shaped ring head sets an oval faceted ruby of pink-red color and white brilliant-cut diamonds. Small openings and fine mille handles structure the surface. To the left and right, more brilliant-cut diamonds lead over to the ring rail. Under the magnifying glass, the rhodium-plated white gold, diamond cuts and manufacturing details alone suggest that the ring was not made in 1920, but more recently. We were able to discover it in England. It is in mint condition.
