COMMENTS: This romantic solitaire ring dates back to the Art Deco ear, 1920-30’s. The sweet diamond head looks like a crown with 8 prongs. The 8 prongs are great for added security and knowing your diamond is safely set. The simplicity of the solitaire setting creates focus on the stunning diamond. Transitional cut diamonds represent a period of cutting and time when diamond cutting was making the transition from Old European Cut to a Modern Brilliant Cut. The .82 carat diamond is high quality with VS2 clarity and G color. Pictured as received from a local estate. Excellent 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.
