Early Art Deco 1.00 DWT Diamond Solitaire 14k Gold Engraved Ring

Early Art Deco 1.00 DWT Diamond Solitaire 14k Gold Engraved Ring


Exuberantly Art Deco in design, this solitaire ring was created around 1920 in New York City. The single diamond stone is crisp and sparkly, set within a six-prong setting that rises nearly a quarter inch proud of the shank. The setting itself boasts unique openwork, notable for the ovular sequence between the elongated prongs, an arrangement that is not commonly found in solitaire ring design. This time period is known for its inventive incorporation of geometry in design, for which this ring is exemplary.

This ring was thoughtfully designed to be stunning from all angles, and the intricate wheat pattern on both sides of the shoulders retains its clarity after a century of wear. In ancient times, wheat was symbolic of love and charity, and wheat-themed patterns first emerged in the Renaissance era to symbolize fertility. By the Deco movement when this ring was made, wheat patterns were symbolic of abundance and success. When viewed from above and from a perfect profile, the incised linework on the shank is visible, and complements the angularity of the wheat pattern.

The body of the ring is made of 14k white gold, interestingly warm in tone compared to other white gold jewelry items, as the photographs illustrate. Its coloring makes it a beautiful option for pairing with mixed metals, especially yellow and rose gold. Its slender width also allows it to stack well with other rings, making it a perfect addition to an anniversary stack or personal collection. This ring was designed by New York based jewelry company Dattlebaum & Friedman, and is a competitively similar style to designs made by the famous Belais Manufacturing Company. Both companies made jewelry that became highly desirable and iconic during the 1920s and 1930s.
