Art Nouveau, 18ct Gold, Emerald and Diamond Ring

SKU: ARB-483

£7,500

Art Nouveau Emerald and Diamond Ring. The elongated shape of this ring has its origins in the 18th century boat-shaped ‘navette’ rings of the 18th century. It’s an enduringly popular design for its elegantly tapering shape, which seems to elongate the finger. This version, with its curving, leaf-like contours, is clearly informed by Art Nouveau, a turn-of-the-century movement characterised by aesthetically stylised naturalism, and sinuous, dramatic lines. The unusual cuts of the outer emeralds are a particularly rare feature. Jewellery designers around this time were starting to explore a wider repertoire of stone-cutting styles, and it now became possible to cut stones to fit in specific designs, rather than having to make the design fit the stone. The outer emeralds are extraordinary as they slightly curve to fit the contours of the ring’s outline - a difficult and expensive feat for a lapidary to accomplish with any gemstone, but particularly with emeralds, which are notoriously brittle. To finish it off, a line of beautifully matched circular-cut diamonds down the centre, bordered by four marquise-shaped emeralds, paired like newly sprouted leaves, some smaller diamond accents and a delicate millegrain border.
