The Belle Époque encompassed three jewelry design periods: Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts movement, and Edwardian. The “Beautiful Era” was a time of increasing wealth and flourishing arts. When cinema boomed, movie stars, instead of European royalty, became trendsetters. As a result, Hollywood (and America) emerged as the ones to watch.
The jewelry of this era was fashioned with pale-colored gemstones, like pearls and diamonds, into lavish necklaces, rings, tiaras, and earrings. Platinum also replaced heavier silver mountings, allowing gemstones to appear in delicate-yet-strong mountings that provided optimum light, airiness, and natural beauty.
This stunning dinner ring is a sign of the times, featuring a central pearl surrounded by sparkling diamonds - .30cts each and 12cts of rose-cut diamonds! A stand-out ring for any night look and classic addition to any collection.
