Art Nouveau Era Flower Bud Ring with Sapphire & Rose Cut Diamonds in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A sweet, Art Nouveau era ring, whose old cut blue sapphire is a flower bud, nodding above a pair of silver-topped, rose cut diamond set leaves. This ring is made in 14k rose gold, with a swooping, asymmetrical band, that curves gracefully and then jags, here and there. Its glinting rose cut diamonds are smoky, and rustic. These small, poetic, Art Nouveau pieces are few and far between. This one is hallmarked for Vienna, Austria, and with the goldsmith's initials— SJ. This ring lays beautifully against the finger, when its flower is worn toward the hand.
c. 1890 - 1900
