Also, please READ the MEASUREMENTS – SIZE CANNOT BE DETERMINED BY THE PHOTOS ALONE! METAL: 12K Yellow Gold (tested). Early 1900s Belle Epoque Era Ring Size 7 See Period History below. 2 Claw Set Rubies or synthetic Rubies (Im not a gemologist) set on a diagonal. They each measure 6mm for an approximate Total Carat Weight of 2.1; Openbacked for enhanced light play. 3 Genuine Seed Pearls on each side; 1.5mm each. The ring shoulders are lovely and curvaceous one swoops up while the other down (bypass shank), each giving open air accent to the ruby focal points. I have a multitude of antique catalogs at my disposal which I study when dating, and this ring style is most certainly early 1900s Belle Epoque. CONDITION: Very Good Antique condition overall! Pearls look great, but there is facet line wear to the rubies noticeable upon magnified inspection (please view all high definition Canon photos). No one will see the wear unless they accost you with a jeweler’s loupe – AVOID these people! There is also fine wear to the gold as is expected on 100+ year old jewelry pieces. Mounting area: 3/4″ across x 1/2″; 5mm Profile depth; Band is between 1/16 & 1/8 wide; Weight: 2.2g. COMMENTS/ADDITIONAL INFO: Lovely Estate find! When your friends ask (and they will), please send them to Bauble Babe’s Fabulous Finds. Your order will be carefully packaged to ensure a safe arrival. The Beautiful Era was a time of increasing wealth and flourishing arts. When cinema boomed, movie stars, instead of European royalty, became trendsetters. Hollywood (and America) emerged as the ones to watch. The light hearted start to the new century inspired lavish yet delicate jewels to complement the fashion of the hourglass silhouette and pale-colored fabrics, with diamonds and pearls reigning supreme and designs reflected the neoclassical and rococo motifs of 18th century French courts. Flowers, bows and ribbons with a lace-like quality featured in what came to be known as’The Garland Style. Neck ornaments were most popular: delicate chokers and elaborate Dog collars, Festoon (draped) necklaces, long, roped Sautoirs that ended in a tassel, simple strands of natural, cultured, and freshwater pearls, lavalières/lavaliers or négligé pendants (with two drops of unequal length). Also popular were screw back earrings, rings, and brooches characterized by garlands and swags of foliate motifs, lace and bows. Sadly, the artistry and opulence of Belle Époque jewelry was halted by the carnage of WWI as the world became focused on fighting a war and wishing brave young men safely home. The good news is that the loveliness of the style has not been lost we are now seeing a resurgence in the popularity of Belle Epoque jewelry, both in the antique period pieces as well as in new, contemporary jewelry designs. 2 On the far right youll see More Actions.
