Antique Vintage Art Deco Retro ring. 18k gold, emerald and diamonds. Made in France circa 1920 - 1940's. Unisex - Originally made for a man, but also suitable for a woman. Measurements: Weight is 9.5 grams. US size 6.5 Length of bezel is 22mm. Emerald 0.78ct; Diamonds 0.66ct. Description : A truly fabulous ring with Art Deco / Retro strongly geometric design. The bold design and large size of the bezel indicate that it was most likely made for a man, but could equally be worn by a woman. The French call this kind of bezel a bridge or vault. It is composed entirely of geometric shapes, which are not symmetric, yet totally in balance. Squares, rectangles and flaring curves. As was the custom, diamonds were set in platinum, so most of the bezel is in platinum, which is used very successfully to contrast with the gold mount of the emerald and background of the shank and bezel. A raised gold cell in the center of a large flaring form, contains a wonderful, bright green emerald. Bright, shiny, transluscent quality of the emerald-cut emerald. Alongside this form is a line of larger European cut diamonds, set in platinum rings on a gold background. Surrounding the sides, filling in the curves and bordering the edges are lines and ribbons of smaller rose-cut diamonds. The rows of diamonds on the two sides of the ring are set above flaring curves, echoing the one behind the emerald, but on the shoulders of the shank and raised apart from the level of the shank. Clearly, a lot of thought and artistry went into designing the different aspects of this ring. The shank surrounds these curves with a broad swoop, that adds to the strength of the design. Marks and Metal: Dog's head indicating platinum alongside eagle head, indicating French, 18k gold. The maker's mark lozenge includes a large A on the right hand side of the diamond-mark. Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer. Has been professionally, independently appraised.
