Ask a question

How sweet is this sapphire and diamond Art Deco bow tie ring? I love the across-the-finger orientation, too.

It’s typical of the period, with its strong colour contrast and straight lines. But it’s very feminine as well, with the scalloped millegrain diamond borders.

The low setting is typical of rings from the first half of the 20th century. This one was handmade around 1940 using 18-carat yellow gold with a platinum top setting.

The gold band is fine and plain, again typical of early 20th century rings. All the emphasis is on the arrangement of the stones, from a time when jewellers made their mounts as near to invisible as possible.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold and platinum
• Two tapered rectangular step-cut and channel-set deep blue natural sapphires estimated to total 1 carat
• Central round brilliant cut diamond and 20 single-cut diamonds estimated to total 0.40 carats, graded set as H/SI

• Face of ring measures approximately 1.57cm (0.62 inches) from sapphire to sapphire

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
