A Sterlé coral cocktail ring from the Art Deco period. A bright and bold piece of hand carved coral fashioned into a 'ying and yang' symbol motif. Set within the coral is an old cut diamond in a yellow gold rub over setting.
Exceptional hand carving skills are demonstrated in this highly collectable piece. Today, Sterlé is considered one of the most innovative jewellery desginers of the 20th century.
Taking its influences from Ancient Egypt, India and Persia, Art Deco jewellery was characterised by sharp edges and clean lines, often featuring unorthodox combinations of natural materials, such as onyx, coral, rubies and jade.
