Description

This vintage 18kt white gold ring is crafted with a classic Art Deco design–a polished flat shank from the shoulders to an ornate galleried traforato (perforated) top.  The central bezel setting secures a stunning 0.42 ct European brilliant cut diamond. Seven other diamonds embellish the ring. All of the details are set out in the attached appraisal, which shows a replacement value of $7800.

Art Deco is a style that emerged in 1925, a result of exhibits at the World’s Fair held in Paris, France. The term Art Deco is a shortened form of the event’s name: Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts).

There are a few markers of this Art Deco era, for jewellery:

-Most jewelry was fashioned in either 10 or 14 kt. white gold or platinum (yellow gold was out of favour)

-Often included Old European Cut diamonds (not today’s round brilliant diamonds)

-Used Delicate filigree work, defined by small intricate cut-outs or perforations
