Art Deco pretties with diamonds and emeralds! I don’t need to tell you how utterly these three are my cup of tea.
The ring predates the brooch; it was made in 1910. The center diamond – a circular cut stone of 2.07 carats – is set within a millegrain surround of circular and single cut rose diamonds and accented by emerald details.
These Art Deco emerald and diamond geometric earrings are the work of the ever marvelous Cartier. They’re contemporaries of the brooch, circa 1935. Each earring is hung with a polished emerald within an open diamond-set frame. The frames are each divided by a line of baguette diamonds and with fancy kite shaped diamond, from diamond set circle-and-dot tops, millegrain set.
I love the contrast of hard and soft here, with the straight lines of the frames, the liquidey emerald drops, and the perfectly round surmounts.
