VIDEO OF RING WORN AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
An antique (Circa 1890 -1915) Art Nouveau 15 Carat Rose Gold Ring Set with 14 Rose Cut Diamonds, Two Rubies and Three Emeralds to an ornate musical note shaped beaded rose gold mount which leads onto diamond split shoulders and a reeded shank/band to the back.
The head measures 3cm x 1.5cm
A stunning statement ring which provides a lot of finger coverage and an excellent investment piece for Art Nouveau collectors. The ring has lots of charm and character which can be best seen from the video above. The diamonds albeit very old are clean and colourless and catch the light in a delicate and feminine way. A true Art Nouveau classic ring which is instantly recognised as such by those in the know and love the era it was hand created.
All of my photos and videos are shot using natural light only. (Window light) so to show the diamonds true colour. The use of LED and flashlights in photos bleach diamonds an artificial "white" which is why I avoid using them. As always, the diamonds have been tested for authenticity with two electronic diamond testers.
Good antique condition. No wear to the setting or band/shank. Crisp beading to the mount. Some of the gems have small chips or a softening to the table facets of the coloured gems in keeping with the age of the ring. Solid as a whole and professionally cleaned and polished. I have had a diamond replaced as it was missing.
Art Nouveau Jewellery (1890 - 1915)
Art Nouveau was a period that is highly admired to this day. The era is often described as sensual, sexual, feminine and exotic. Styles previously considered vulgar and unsightly, were suddenly celebrated and enjoyed. The female form became the focus of many designs. Beautiful colours, textures and tones were used to create fabulous creations including botanical motifs, feathers and intricate scrolling designs. Materials used to create the jewels of this era, were chosen based on merit, beauty and artistic appreciation rather than their intrinsic value. This meant many gemstones that until this point hadn’t been considered as particularly desirable, for example peridot, amethysts, moonstone and enamel.
Genuine Vintage / Antique
When browsing for a vintage ring be sure that the ring is authentic and that you are working with a reputable dealer. There are a lot of vintage style designs on the market that are made to look like old rings–but they're simply vintage-inspired. Be sure to ask the dealer if their designs are authentic vintage/antique. Old rings can increase in value over time whereas re-creations do not.
