This platina Art Deco ring radiates pure white shimmer and verdant green beams from its 0.75 ct diamond center in five expanding circles of a total of 104 diamonds alternating with four circles of 96 emeralds in total.
How extravagant this jewel presents itself through its design, so meticulously it is crafted too. The attention that has been spent on detail and perfection for every à jour cut gem setting is extraordinary. One could wear this ring inside out just as well, so to speak.
Last but not least, the creation of this piece of virtuosity could have risen in the twenties as well as up until the fifties of the 19th century. Its refined mastery and use of coloured gemstone patterns points us to Art Deco, but its grandeur and more modern cut central diamond leads us to a later period. No explanation necessary to see that ring is ageless in any case.
