Art Deco 3.25 Carat Tsavorite & Old Cut Diamond Ring, circa 1925
We discovered this wonderful Art Deco mount bereft of a centre stone. After much deliberation, we plumped for gemstone we adore but – as antique dealers – almost never see: tsavorite, first discovered in the late 1960s. The stone is rubover set in within a phenomenally intricate and beautifully detailed vented gallery. Fifteen eight-cut and rose cut diamonds surround the stone, with a further six (three either side) in the shoulders. The best of two ages, in one ring.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report.
