A 1930s platinum 1.27ct diamond ring. This stunning engagement ring was made at a time when the global economy saw a downturn (due to the American stock market crash) and Hollywood glamour was all the rage. Women began wearing more jewellery and as a result with the cut backs, costume jewellery was made. A ring like this would have been incredibly expensive and hard to purchase. It is handmade in platinum and features a large 1.27ct old European cut diamond with an incredible colour and clarity: G/VS (for the age). The strong geometric lines, typical of the 1920s Art Deco style are contrasted against the 1930s curved lines which embodied the elegance of the "Old Hollywood" age.
The 1930s saw a departure from the carefree flapper style of the 20s and a new decade began with the glamour that was oozing out of Hollywood. The dress clip was the most popular piece of jewellery at the time worn on the neckline and soon being designed in a double incorporating the symmetry featured so heavily in the designs of the Art Deco period. The slim line and fine details in rings and bracelets seen in the 20s were expanded on and bracelets became wider while rings became more elongated both horizontally and vertically on the fingers. Men wore Cartier’s bejewelled cufflinks and diamond studded brooches, which brought an air of glamour to their masculinity.
