Iconic Art Deco geometric boxy styling graces this classic 1920s jazz baby gem.
The ring is rendered in 9ct yellow gold and features a glowing emerald cut paste (glass) ruby claw set into a silver collet. The ruby is flanked by two silver columns that are bright cut and high polished to a diamond illusion finish. This two tone metal technique is often seen in antique rings produced before the widespread use of white gold as a platinum substitute.
The ring is by Henry Griffiths & Son, a prolific English manufacturing jeweller active during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras. A fabulous ring, super quality and in top notch condition, it just screams Art Deco, and will arrive with the box shown.
