An unmarked 18 carat gold brooch formed as a gently curving arch with three steps up to the central panel which is channel set with 9 step cut Burmese rubies.
The clean lines of this design accompanied by the 3-dimensional curved form anchors this brooch in the later part of the Art Deco movement, when designers were turning to more industrial motifs with pared back forms.
Although this brooch is unmarked, it is attributable to Ghisò in its design and form.
The Burmese rubies are estimated to weigh approximately 4.50 carats in total and are a fine pigeon’s blood red colour.
The brooch measures 5.5cm x 1.8cm (2.2 x 0.75 inches) and weighs 15.54g.
A French 18 carat gold ring in the architectural Retro style set with 18 square cut rubies totaling approximately 0.70 carats in a ‘bridge’ design. The curve of the bridge section is interrupted by arching gold forms which continue down to form the shank of the ring.
This extremely chic and stylish ring is a personal favourite of ours! Its clean lines and geometric detail recall designers such as Raymond Templier, the aesthetics of the 1930s, and the rise of the Modernist movement that heralded the final stages of the Art Deco.
A heavy 18ct gold ring deisgned with three curved ridges encircling the finger, with a flattened top. This ring has been handmade rather than cast from a mould, and the quality of the manufacture is evident in every sleek line and curve.
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.
