These rings don’t have much in common except that they’re all fabulous. I am going to post them all together, because it’s my blog and I can do what I want.
This antique moonstone and diamond ring was made in 1880. It features a moonstone carved with an owl head within a collet set diamond frame, with coronet setting and tri-furcated shoulders. It reminds me of the work of contemporary jewelry designer, Bounkit.
This gold and silver mounted lattice work french cut ruby and diamond square cluster ring is antique, but its exact date is not known. I love how the rubies criss-cross the diamonds like the crust on a pie.
This is an early 19th century diamond and colored gold commemorative ring for Napoleon I, circa 1815. The diamond set ‘N’ sits below a crown atop a circular gold panel with textured matte ground and colored gold border, one half of which features a lemon gold laurel wreath, the other half has red, white and yellow flowerheads. The underside of the ring has a hinged, glazed hair locket compartment, birfurcated foliate shoulders, and reeded gold shank.
This is an undated single stone green tourmaline and diamond dress ring. It features a cut-corner rectangular tourmaline with box collet set rose diamond highlights to each side, claw set in platinum.
This two stone pear-shaped sapphire and diamond crossover ring is so exuberant. The 1.45ct sapphire is bordered by tapering baguette diamonds and with channel set sapphire shoulders and the diamond bordered by calibre cut sapphires and with channel set diamond shoulder. The ring is mounted in platinum.
