A rare and beautiful 18ct yellow gold, platinum and diamond rectangular chevalier bombé cocktail ring by René Boivin, from the Retro period. A central, vibrant, green cabochon emerald has been securely rub over set and surrounded by pavé set brilliant diamonds. These diamonds, claw set into platinum, sparkle magnificently and contrast strikingly with the green candy like emerald. The design is completed by warm yellow gold shoulders which complement the rub over setting around the emerald. The engraver and designer René Boivin founded the firm bearing his name in Paris during the 1890s. This period was hugely important for jewellery design, and the Boivin name quickly gained a reputation for high quality unconventional pieces that showcased sculptural naturalism. On Boivin's death in 1917, Madame René Boivin took control of the firm and continued producing exceptional pieces, with the help of her daughter Germaine Boivin and the designers Juliette Moutard and Suzanne Belperron. The house was as its peak when it was owned and run by the founding family, from 1890 to 1991. This bold creation encapsulates the geometric architectural forms that were so dominant during the Art Deco period, whilst showcasing yellow gold. During the late 1940s, platinum was reserved for wartime use, so jewellery embraced the warm tones of yellow and rose gold. It conforms to the Boivin principle that jewellery had its own distinct identity and reflected the personality of the wearer. Pieces bearing the Boivin signature are hugely sought after today, with examples being found in the collections of the most famous museums. This exceptional piece is accompanied by a certificate from the renowned Boivin experts, Françoise Cailles and Jean-Norbert Salit.
