One of the prettiest designs I have come across in a 1930s geometric Art Deco ring. This ring has so much going on design-wise, which make it a real head turner. A lot of this ring seems to be hand crafted.
The beautiful shapes in the main design and the arched reflections, both above it and below it. All cut out so that some light gets behind the design and it looks more ethereal because of this. I love that it is simply not a complete chunk of silver. Again, it feels finer because of this.
I love the striking diamond shape in the centre, which is again, continued and echoed as you go up and down the ring. It all serves to focus your eyes back to the centre of the ring. There are glistening marcasites all over the design so it catches the light beautifully. There are even marcasites dotted on each shoulder.
This lovely thing measures approx as a UK size N (US 6.75) and is ready to wear. I have left that touch of patina on the ring, as it just looks beautiful. The inside of the band is marked “STERLING” and has a three digit serial number (?) which is unusual. The condition is excellent…there seems to be a little irregularity ( in the platform section, which I have taken a photo of. It was most likely caused by the maker when crafting the ring. Minor and part of its character.
A lovely Art Deco shape, which looks flattering on the finger.
