Art Deco .73 Carat Emerald-Cut Ruby and Diamond Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
All of the iconic characteristics--and allure--of Art Deco design are present in this lovely and exquisitely restrained jewel. Resting nice and low on the finger, its rounded corner-square shape shines brightly with European and single-cut diamonds that provide a lively light show all around a deep cherry-red .78 carat emerald-cut ruby. The elegant assemblage is supported by subtly engraved shoulders that twinkle with tiny stones, while a side gallery fashioned with chenier tubing and dainty scrolls adds the finishing flourish to this Deco delight. Total diamond weight, .67 carat. Hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1930, currently ring size 7. Condition note: one baguette has a small chip.
