Art Deco Diamond Dinner Ring by Belais
ABOUT THIS RING
Jewelry is the unique vision of each craftsman, expressing individual sensibilities and aesthetics. This lovely Art Deco jewel is distinctively pierced to create an artful openwork design, complete with a center 'bow' beautifully accented north and south with a duo of crisply sparkling European-cut diamonds set in elegant pear-shaped settings. The overall form of the ring is a scalloped navette that leads to flared shoulders--engraved with a neoclassical pattern--creating a graceful wing-like effect. Not all artwork hangs on walls. Total diamond weight, .25 carat. Hand fabricated in 18K gold by renowned New York jeweler, Belais Bros. (the first jeweler to introduce 18K white gold to America), circa 1930. Currently ring size 5 3/4.
