This unusual Art Deco aquamarine and mine-cut diamond ring features a horizontally-set, faceted oval aquamarine flanked by 3 mine-cut diamond clusters! It speaks to the Art Deco period, not only in the period cut of the stones, but in the minimal yet distinguishing details on the mounting.
The aquamarine is a lovely pastel blue color, the alluring color of sea and sky. It’s name comes from aqua marina, Latin for “seawater.” The unique character of the mine-cut diamonds projects the highly dispersive nature of these cuts whereby the rainbow
colors are flashed in their sparkle.
An engraved flourish details the center of the mounting panel on each side and the typical Art Deco flourish seen on buildings adorns each shoulder. Featured is an *approximately 1.35 carat aquamarine. The side settings are comprised of 3 mine cut diamonds with an *approximate total carat weight of 0.30 carats.
The setting is in 14k white gold, the most typical color of gold used in the Art Deco period and the ring is currently size 6.
There are a few minor spots in the white gold mounting which suggest this ring was lovingly worn in hot tubs or while swimming.
White gold is sensitive to chlorine. Designed and made in 1925-1935, during the Art Deco period, it is nearly 100 years old and these marks represent the character of a piece of period jewelry of its age.
*approximation is due to the fact that the stones are mounted and exact measurements and weights can not be determined.
