Antique Art Deco ring. Platinum mount with diamonds and natural sapphires. Made circa 1920's.

Design of this ring is the ultimate Art Deco. Geometric and balanced in every way. The ring consists of concentric rectangles of gems, all finely set in platinum. A central old mine cut diamond surrounded by a rectangle of calibre set deep blue sapphires. This in turn enclosed in a rectangle of single cut diamonds. The shoulders recede with the same design being continued. The borders are filigree platinum, with spaces between, allowing light to enter the ring and light the gems from behind. The workmanship is excellent and what one would expect from a top-notch deco ring. This period is exalted for it's superior craftsmanship and this ring is a great example of exactly that as well as the strong Deco design.
Makes perfect engagement wedding or anniversary ring. It is unusual for rings from this period to have natural sapphires. Very often synthetic sapphires were used during the Art Deco era.
