Please don’t buy this as it’s now on hold!

I love the design of this onyx and diamond ring from the 1920s, when black and white were the height of fashion. The top and bottom halves are reverse mirror images.

It’s early Art Deco, so there’s a fineness and delicacy to the platinum structure reminiscent of the preceding Edwardian age.

It conjures up that time when women aspired to be smart for the first time – rather than just pretty.
