Art Deco Ruby & Old Cut Diamond Bangle, dated 1940
An immense and rare Art Deco bangle which displays all the characteristics we love about vintage jewellery; balance, craftsmanship and, most importantly, the sort of opulence that borders on excess. A glowing, pinkish red ruby crowns the piece, with eight rubover set old mine cut diamonds either side and eighty rose cuts grain set in the surround. A treasure of the highest quality.
