Hello, my dears!! Happy 2014 to you! It was good for me to take a little bit of time off, but I’m happy to be back. I missed you.
Let’s dive right in. I have something bright and happy for you to kick off January in style.
This diamond, emerald, and onyx ring is described as Estate and is made in Art Deco style, although the ring is undated.
Fourtane calls this ring “feminine, unusual, fine, and delicate” and that seems to be wonderfully accurate. Just look at the diamond-set ribbonlike details coming off of the center diamond – it looks almost like it’s tied on with diamond ribbons, doesn’t it?
This ring’s bezel-set center diamond gives the piece sparkle with a low profile. It’s 1.54 carats and grades as H-I color, Vs2 clarity. The ring is complimented by custom cut onyx, emeralds, and additional diamonds. The piece’s wonderful texture comes from the millegrain edges throughout the Art Deco-inspired design. It’s mounted entirely in platinum.
Even though this ring is more modern, it boasts the elaborate filigree undergallery of the authentic Art Deco rings I love so dearly. It looks almost like stained glass from the underside, with the light shining through the emerlds. I think it’s a wonderful piece.
Here’s a better look at the filigree from the side. So light and elegant.
What do you think? Can you picture this on your right hand as a cocktail ring, or does it say engagement to you? I think it could go either way, and with its bezel-set center stone and low profile, it would certaintly be easy (and fun) to wear.
