One of my great hypotheses as a budding jewelry historian has always been the revival of Georgian themes in Art Deco jewelry, and I have never seen a cleaner example of a Georgian jewel that would later inspire the geometric sensibilities of the Deco period. This gorgeous and lively spring-green emerald has been delicately enveloped into a cushion of colette-set rose cuts. Embellished on the reverse with a starburst finish and complete with shoulders that include naturalistic elements abound, a triple-split shank reaches up and cradles the face of this immaculate mid 18th century example. This is simply a spectacular ring stand alone ring that exemplifies both the delicacy and color fascination of the Georgian period.
