This ring is what Art Deco was all about. Strong geometric lines, sculpted shapes and streamline form is a departure from the fluid and floral Art Nouveau shapes.
This wonderful show of the Deco style was crafted in Continental Europe in the 1920's or 1930's. The hallmark on the ring is unfortunately so rubbed that it is difficult to determine but we attribute it to Austria or Prussia. We carefully tested it and the fact that it is 14 carat gold confirms this most likely origin. The white gold the ring is made of beautifully enhances the super white and clean old cut diamonds set into it, we estimate them to be G colour at the minimum. Digits 38. are etched on the inside of the band and we think it refers the diamond carat weigh of 0.38 carats as we estimated the total at 0.4 carats. There is a possibility that it is a date as well, when the ring was given to someone …..1938, but we think it is more likely to have been made in the 20's. It weighs 2.9 grams and is a size US 6 3/4 or UK N 1/2 and the size can easily be adjusted up or down. The face measures 0.79 by 0.41 inches and sits 3.49 mm up off the finger, making it lovely and flush to the hand with lovely proportions. This lovely ring is sizeable without being over large and can be worn daily. It can also be a stunning engagement ring, super stylish and unique.
