A beautiful example of a 1920s 1.18ct handmade platinum diamond engagement ring. This ring features a 1.18ct Old European Cut diamond which exhibits a fantastic colour for the period. Graded Colour: H and Clarity: VS with the surrounding 12 Diamonds having a total weight of 0.30ct. This ring is an early example of the Art Deco style. You can see there is still a slight softness in the lines but the geometry is really starting to take over the design. Being all handmade in platinum, this piece was the height of fashion. Being 100 years of age it is in perfect condition, just like the day it was made.
Art Deco (1920 - 1939):
It can be argued that the Art Deco period actually started before the 1920s, however it is agreed that it really took off after the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Decorative Arts and Modern Industries) in Paris, 1925.
Drawing on influences from earlier art movements such as Cubism and Bauhaus, the style took traditional jewellery design and through it out the window. The soft, flowing lines inspired by nature from the previous eras were gone. Instead sharp, geometrical designs took centre stage and countries such as Asia and Egypt became the primary source of inspiration. Platinum and white gold were the prominent metals used to set stones, diamonds were popularly being set and contrasted with black onyx and the bright colours of jade, coral, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. This design style resulted in some of the most amazing and influential designs to ever have come out of the industry.
