Art Deco Long Oval Emerald and Diamond Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
Measuring just a tad shy of 1 3/4 inches by 3/4 inch, the striking crown of this early Art Deco dinner ring (circa 1920) sparkles with a melange of European and single-cut diamonds, artfully accentuated with decorative piercing, dramatically centered by a colorful column of gorgeous, vibrant green square-cut emeralds (together weighing 1.70 carats) set on the bias. The openwork side gallery is a series of fanciful loops perfectly complemented by the tulip-like split shoulders of the shank. It's like a fabulous jewel-studded shield for your finger. Total diamond weight - 2.35 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum with an 18K gold shank. Currently ring size 6 1/2.
