Art Deco Old Cut Diamond & Sapphire Egyptian Revival Ring, French, circa 1925
The opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 inspired jewellery design throughout the Art Deco period, and this quite wonderful and bold ring is a fine example of what came to be called the Egyptian revival. Centred by a glowingly white old mine cut set in a square collet which contrasts with the sweeping lines of the tapered baguette sapphires. A ring that remains radical and eye-catching, this fine piece is a collector’s dream.
