Fabulous art deco jade and diamond estate ring crafted in 14K yellow gold. This is a remarkable piece of design that showcases a natural, mined, oval cut rich green jade cabochon with a fine polish. The design and craftsmanship are truly outstanding and unique, with the shank actually looping through the jade and is highlighted by 5 round, full cut diamonds measuring 1mm in diameter each, approximately .05 carats in total weight. The diamonds average VS-2 - SI-1 in clarity and F-H in color. Truly a remarkable piece to add to a serious collection.
CONDITION: The condition of the jade, diamonds and setting are excellent.
SIZE: The jade measure 17.5mm x 12mm and is approximately 3.50 carats in weight. The shank tapers from 6.5mm near the mounting to 4.5mm toward the back. The jade portion of the ring measures 20mm X 18mm rising 6.5mm above the finger. The ring weighs 8.8 grams and currently a size 5 3/4 and can be resized up or down by a qualified jeweler.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
