COMMENTS: Art deco era, circa 1920-30’s. This beautiful ring is crafted of 18k white gold. The setting is a small dome that sits 1/4″ off the finger. There is exquisite detail throughout the ring of filigree, etching and milgrain details. With 8 prongs holding the diamond, the diamond is very secure! This vintage ring will touch your heart and soul with its timeless beauty. 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. Cleaning and/or polishing by request at no additional cost.
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.
