How gorgeous is this ring, depicting an Art Nouveau girl?
She is the symbol of what the Art Nouveau movement was all about. Her beautiful and expressive face adorned with flowing golden hair, the jewelled headdress and flowers at her temples….a poetic dance of the times and indeed a dancer she might be. These times were the glorious era of Louis Tiffany and Rene Lalique and their fascination in organic forms and the beauty found in all that is natural. Wearing this ring feels like stepping into this magical Nouveau Art of the new and progressive time at the turn of the 20th century.
This beauty has had it's original shank replaced at some point by a simple gold band of 18 carat yellow gold ( not hallmarked but gently acid tested ), matching the golden colour of the ring top. The beautifully detailed enamel work on the girl's face has worn away a little on her nose and chin but you can still see the super fine detail of the quality piece. The rest of the enamel is in good condition. Her face is so alive with expression…. She is so serene in her beauty. Her headdress is set with 9 sparkly rose cut diamonds and the flowers feature emeralds in their centres. The ring is a US size 5 and UK size J 1/2, weighs 3.3 grams. It can be re-sized up or down and it's face is 0.68 inches long by 0.42 inches wide.
We love ...... this dancing beauty, the face of Art Novoeau ! She sits lovely and low on the finger, smooth and silky upon your hand, sending flashes of diamond and emerald sparkle that light up her gorgeous face........ bringing a big a smile to yours……
