Art Deco Garnet and Rose-cut Diamond Dinner Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
This striking late Art Deco dinner ring is of unusual origin and materials. Hand fabricated in silver over 18K gold (versus the usual platinum), the star mark inside indicates that this 3/4+ inch-long finger bauble hails from Italy, specifically between 1935-38. The ring features a dusky, almandine cushion-cut garnet, framed in consummate geometric style and enlivened by a handful of glinting rose-cut diamonds, all of which are supported by charming fleur-de-lys shoulders. Currently ring size 7 1/2.
