A patterned diamond ring from the Art Deco period. A brilliant cut diamond secured with a four claw setting is flanked on both sides by a tapered design of baguette cut emeralds alternating with brilliant cut diamonds. Set in platinum with millegrain edges.
The contrasting colours and shapes of this band ring make it as striking and wearable as the day it was made.
Art Deco jewellery, like all other aspects of the movement, was synonymous with contrasting colours, geometric shapes and strong patterns: a complete rejection of the soft, curvy forms that defined the previous era.
