I THIS PRODUCT ADD TO WISHLIST
An immensely stylish ring in the late 1930s style with architectural and geometric forms surmounted by a ridged diamond pavé-set bridge rising from a triangular shaped base inset with single cut diamonds. The shank tapers away from the top of the ring while maintaining that triangular outline, and is bordered to the top with pave-set diamond accents which continue to a platinum border on the sides and base of the shank.
The ring is set with 38 brilliant-cut diamonds and 10 single-cut diamonds with a total approximate weight of 2.10 carats. It is unmarked, but the quality of manufacture leads us to believe that it must have been made in France. The ring has been resized to an R (US 9), at which point those identifying marks would have been lost.
The style of this ring is reminiscent of the designs by Boivin and the high jewellery houses, and the quality of manufacture leads us to believe that it was originally signed by one of these makers.
Set with a large oval cabochon of very fine grained vivid Lapis Lazuli with minimal pyrite (gold coloured) flecks, this is a true show stopper. The cabochon is centrally prong set in a bold 18 carat yellow gold ring by flames of yellow gold emerging between four platinum mounted diamond flames on each side reaching up from the back of the shank to encircle the lapis.
We adore this ring. Made in 18ct yellow gold and set with 58 round brilliant cut diamonds to the bombe form surrounding an oval ruby in the centre, it really is a fabulous and very beautifully made piece of jewellery.
This fabulous cocktail ring is set with 50 sapphires of Thai origin weighing an approximate total of 17 carats, interspersed with 31 single-cut and brilliant cut diamonds with a total approximate weight of 0.40 carats.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful necklace ShinyPrettyThings obtained for Ellie. She was so thrilled with it and I just know it will be precious to her always. The colour is so vivid and she was so thrilled to open it.
Over the past year or so ShinyPrettyThings has carefully assembled a beautiful collection of Jewellery pieces for me. Predominately rings and necklaces, each piece has been carefully chosen with my personal taste in mind. I like delicate details and period design, Georgian, early Victorian and a little Art Deco…this is just what ShinyPrettyThings has found for me. I love my new ruby and diamond pearl drop earrings that were so cleverly sourced to tie in with my other pieces. ShinyPrettyThings brings wonderful customer service and immense knowledge and attention to detail to each commission.
My new clocks arrived safely this am. They are absolutely beautiful!! Extremely well packed and in perfect condition. Could not be happier!
Thanks very much. Hope we can do business again.
