The Story:

A diamond cluster unlike any other, this ring dates to the Art Nouveau movement in Germany, known as “Jugendstil”, which translates to “Youth Style” and lasted from the late 1880s/mid 1890s through the start of World War I. This movement was defined by arabesques, florals, and organicism (often asymmetrically), all of which tended toward abstraction. Such abstraction was simple, dynamic and animated, and were later carefully combined with geometries to form complex pattern-like motifs. Jugendstil was a foundation of the experimentalism of the later Bauhaus and the like, where, for arguably the first time, the ‘high’ fine arts were merged with the crafted and functional arts. 

This domed cocktail ring is suffused with the naturalistic form and function for which Jugendstil was known. As was very popular for Jugendstil jewelry, this piece is forged in 800 silver, also known as Coin Silver, which is 800 parts silver to 200 parts alloy (versus sterling which is 925 parts silver to 75 parts alloy). The design of the ring is centered around a deep Old European cut diamond of light champagne color, flanked by twelve raised prong-set round faceted diamonds. This center diamond bears a chip (pictured) that has long been present, and for which the price has been fairly adjusted. From this central area which has the highest profile of the ring, burst sweeping petal-like shapes of silver. Embedded in these petals are twenty-two slices of natural diamonds, that even without faceting, catch and refract light like their cut counterparts.

This ring is a stunning German Nouveau piece, as diamond and coin silver jewelry dating to this period is extraordinarily rare to find, and very few examples exist in the market outside of museums and private collections. Some key design details that mark this ring as iconically Jugendstil and date it to approximately 1895-1910 include the cut of the stones, as OEC and this style of round faceting were not produced mainstream past 1920. Also, the very tall prongs, holding the clusters of six diamonds on either side of the center stone, are typical for the late 1890s to just the turn of the century, further honing the date range possible. Further, upon inspection of the interior of the carriage shows round, open bezel-like molds to allow light to pass through each set stone, a feature that was used through the Art Deco years. The shank is a triple wire split, and the carriage rests on four circular separators that connect the band to the face of the ring. While highly unusual, these visual clues accredit this piece to the years surrounding the turn of the century.

As artfully organic as it is architecturally bold, this romantic cluster ring is strikingly singular, with virtually no other comparable pieces available in the market at the time of assessment. It boasts loads of sparkle and a range of stone color, its handcut stones visibly and charmingly imprecise in comparison to today’s machine-cut stones. Made for those intrigued with design history, this ring is as unique in character as its wearer.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.
