ABOUT THIS RING

You have to look very closely to notice that the delicate vertical louvers framing the sparkling center diamond in this exquisite Belle Époque dinner ring are seamlessly set with teeny-tiny calibre sapphires (versus simple open negative space). Measuring 3/4-inch long, the stunning neoclassical jewel is bordered all around by laurel leaves set with glittering rose-cut diamonds, in addition to the four bezel-set European-cut diamonds. A delightful delicacy, best not for everyday wear. Total diamond weight, .26 carat. Finely hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold, circa 1890-1910. Currently ring size 6 1/4.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
