Edwardian 1.79ct Solitaire Diamond RingIrene Byrne & Co
This ring is just something else, whilst not as big and elaborate as its Art Deco cousins in the display cabinet, this very fine and elegant Edwardian solitaire ring, is the the very reason for the saying ‘less is more’. The solitaire is a fine example of an old European cut diamond of 1.79ct, and the beautifully detailed shank is in 18ct yellow gold, where the setting itself is in platinum to complement the diamond.

Edwardian & Belle Époque Period (1901 - 1910):
Named after the reigning King Edward VII and with notable influences from French Rococo décor, this period was the shortest in antique jewellery history. However, it was during this time that platinum was introduced into the art of jewellery making which changed the way diamonds could be set. The popular jewellery design at the time was the “garland” which flowed on from the Art Nouveau period as it focused on nature but more particularly, on flowers and leaves often arranged in some circular shape. Through the use of milgrain and pierced and engraved metals, the Belle Époque designs gave way to jewellery that mimicked the delicate nature of lace and ribbon with natural pearls and old mine cut diamonds being the material of choice.
