Art Deco Era Belais Wheat & Garter OEC Diamond Engagement Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
An elegant Art Deco era ring, modeled in 18k white gold by the well-known American jewelers Belais, whose primary gem is a .62 carat old European cut diamond. This lively old diamond is bead-set into an octagonal seat, that nests in the ring's round face. This ring is heavily embellished with a delicate composition of hand-pierced and carved details. Strappy garters, decoarted with a traditional wheat motif, overlap open-work, knife-wire sections; an engraved orange blossom sits at the base of the bulbous gallery, and romantic, scrolling forms populate the face of the ring shank. A pair of bezel-set, French cut, pennant-shaped sapphires (created) flank the ring's sparkling old cut diamond. The slender knife-edge shank tapers toward the base.
Wheat is a traditional motif in engagement rings— because it symbolizes both fertility and productivity, carrying with it hopes for a fruitful partnership. The garter is symbolic of loyalty/fidelity. This classic beauty would make a fine engagement ring! Marked 18k for purity, and for the maker, Belais.
