Ask a question

This pretty early Art Deco ruby and diamond bracelet from about 1915 contains lingering elements of the preceding Edwardian era.

Traditionally handcrafted from 18-carat gold, a fine top laminate of platinum has superseded the old heavy silver top setting used in previous times.

Small calibre cut coloured stones set beside tiny rose cut diamonds often feature, as here.

Contrasting colours and geometric forms were a feature of early Art Deco jewels, and the newly invented synthetic rubies and sapphires with perfect colour matching were embraced by jewellers seeking a clean, sharp design.

This example has reached the heights of delicacy that gold can afford. It’s worth scrolling through the pics to look at the back setting to really appreciate this.

The overall colours are red and white, with just a hint of warmth from the gold base complementing the rubies.
