The larger diamonds measures 1/4 carat each but appear to be almost 1/2 carat each because of the illusion setting. The top of the ring sits about 1/4″ off the finger.

There’s something magical about jewelry from another era, with its own story to tell. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.

The Art Deco Period, which began around 1920 and ended about 1935, produced brilliant jewelry which was in contrast to the jewelry of the previous periods. The emphasis shifted from soft colors and flowing lines to bold, bright colors and straight lines. Women cut their long hair and began wearing it short and boyish. This was the era of jazz and flappers! Art Deco jewelry complimented the flamboyant and playful attitude of the day and remains a favorite of collectors today.
