Antique French Diamond Ring, Art Nouveau in 18k & Platinum

She was in love with Art Nouveau, with the whiplash lines, the organic feel. She had purchased a property at 29 Avenue Rapp, in the 7th arrondissement in Paris. She would build an apartment building, make money and keep the 5th floor for her own use. She was meeting today with Jules Aimé Lavirotte, who designed buildings with exuberant and imaginative decoration, buildings that spoke to the artist in her soul. She wore this ring, she knew he would love it. He did. 

This Art Nouveau ring would be called Edwardian if it was English; not at all an ugly name, though perhaps a bit masculine for describing this light and airy style. Luckily for this ring, it’s French, it’s get’s to go by a much better name, this ring is Belle Époque, which translates as ‘Beautiful Era’, and indeed it is. Hand crafted in 18 karat and platinum topped, it is set with 31 bright and sparkly diamonds. The three larger stones are set as flowers on rose cut diamond encrusted stems, the center stone is .5 carats, the other two are .25 and .35 carats for a total diamond weight of 1.0 carats not including the rose cuts. The ring is marked on the back of the band with the French Eagle’s head mark and the number ’11464’ (most likely and insurance mark), it also has a partial French makers mark. The ring measures 27.5 mm north to south and 20 mm across, it sits 6.5 mm off the finger. This ring is a size 7.25 US and could be resized slightly, it weighs 5.1 grams. 

Made in France in about 1910.
