  • Nothing resembles the 1920s more than this immaculate French sapphire and diamond cluster ring. The strong use of shape, symmetry, contrast and line are all prominent features of the much loved Art Deco design style. Handmade in platinum, the large 4.20ct oval, natural sapphire is surrounded by a border of 12 old European cut diamonds and 12 small *synthetic blue sapphires. The intricacy and skill level of this ring stands out today against its contemporary counterparts and to replicate the design by hand would involve great knowledge and craftsmanship. The person lucky enough to buy or receive this Art Deco ring will no doubt, be receiving a one-of-a-kind!
    This setting is all handmade.

    * The invention of synthetic gemstones in the late 1900s was considered a 'marvel' as for the first time, men were able to create a gemstone that replicated one that was natural. Highly prized, synthetics accented  jewellery alongside diamonds and natural stones. The use of synthetic stones do not devalue the ring the way that we think of synthetics today; they are one of the ways of identifying the rings history and age as they were prevalently used in jewellery in the 1920s. 
  • The 1920s
    Gone were the empire gowns of the Edwardian Era and in came the shorter, more free flowing flapper dresses with their dropped waists and flirty intentions. As a result the jewellery changed to compliment the latest fashion trends. While old cut gems were still being used, yellow gold was being fazed out and white gold and platinum were taking over the jewellery industry creating long necklaces with tassels on the end (satouirs), line bracelets and elongated earrings to stand out against short cropped hair. Rings were perfectly symmetrical and often featured contrasting stones which really added to the whole new look of the “Jazz Age”.
