The Story:

Exquisitely made by the hand of master artisans during the late 1920s or 1930s, this solitaire ring boasts an intricate Art Deco design. According to a jeweler’s assessment for this ring, the ring is in very good condition, and centers a natural Fancy Yellow diamond of incredible VVS2-VS1 clarity. The color and clarity of this stone are only enhanced by the Old European cut faceting, which shows a characteristically taller diamond with chunkier facets within and an ‘open’ culet at its center-- all of which cause light to burst in and through the stone and refract in bright golden flashes. Old Euros are beloved for these aspects, and are particularly dazzling on clearer diamond gemstones such as this one. 

This center stone sits within a four corner pronged mount that cups the stone at right angles to give a squared impression, a stylistic preference very popular toward the end of the 1920s and throughout the 1930s, also informing later 1940s designs. The castellated mount is left smooth and unadorned on its four side profiles, a visual breather to balance the rest of the ring’s august ornamentation. The shoulders of this ring are symmetrical, both sides composed of a single five-petaled flower with a stem and trio of leaves that are both the body of the ring and bridge the shoulders to the shank. These blooms and leaves have been carefully etched by hand with linear engravings, which subtly catch the light and allude to the light and shadow of three dimensional fauna. 

The base of the stems on both sides give way to a very classically Deco pattern consisting of alternating milgrain lines and engraved petaled flower faces. This pattern nearly rounds the band, but a section of the very base (back) of the band has been strategically left plainer so as to allow for easy sizing and design reconstructing, should sizing become necessary. Most rings of this age have been sized at some point in their history, meaning that these ‘sizing sections’ are typically utilized (either eliminated to make a ring smaller or expanded to make a ring larger). Because this ring’s so-called ‘sizing section’ is still intact, we can safely deduce that this ring has likely not ever been altered for sizing purposes in its nearly 100 years of life. 

Apart from being beautiful to behold, the details of this ring tell us a bit about its history and meaning. Though used for some time before it was patented around 1921, white gold became a top choice for jewelry of the Deco period, as its bright white appearance offset the brightness of diamonds and gemstones more luminously than yellow gold, and was a more economical alternative to platinum alloys. This ring is of a relatively high carat purity of white gold, and is mounted with an extraordinarily distinguished diamond, so from these compositional attributes, we know that its manufacturer very high end, greatly skilled and discerning, indeed.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold all of Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

General Information: All additional jewelry boxes, ring boxes, and other jewelry items pictured alongside a featured listing are considered props, are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless otherwise noted. Items do not come with physical documentation, appraisals, or certifications, unless explicitly stated in the item description and/or title. While jewelry is inspected upon procurement by the shop as well as prior to shipment, Revival Fine Jewelry cannot guarantee a warranty once items leave our inventory, given the delicate and individual nature of secondhand articles and the unaccountability of buyer handling post-purchase.

Shipping: All orders are carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box, secured with recycled materials when possible, and shipped within a discreet outer shipping parcel. All orders ship with tracking, insurance and signature confirmation. Shipping options are presented at checkout. Per law and inegrity, international orders are always marked as commodity imports and customers are responsible for any and all customs expenses, VAT taxes and import fees, as well as any clearance costs legally dictated by their respective destination countries. These expenses are not calculated into the pricing structure, and returns based on import costs will not be permitted.

Returns: While Revival Fine Jewelry aims to provide a smooth experience from start to finish, customers are encouraged to reach out regarding any issue or dissatisfaction, so that we may work together toward a resolution. If a return is desired, the shop must be notified of an intention to return within 3 days of confirmed delivery, and item(s) must be shipped back to the shop within 7 days of confirmed delivery. All materials (gift box, inserts, cards) must be returned with the item(s). Returns declared after the 3 day window and/or postmarked after 7 days of receipt will neither be accepted nor refunded. Customers are responsible for generating an insured return shipping label (international customers included) and relaying the tracking information to Revival Fine Jewelry. Returns that do not include full insurance and/or tracking, and are damaged or lost in transit, will not be refunded. If a return is accepted, customers will be refunded less the original cost of shipping, handling and insurance, the expense of any damages incurred, and a 10% restocking fee (of the original purchase price). All sale items, items altered or resized by the buyer post-purchase, and all storage/ boxes are considered final sale and are ineligible for a return or refund.

Sale Terms: Sale prices are only valid within the prescribed sale window, unless otherwise stated by Revival Fine Jewelry or agreed upon between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer. To maintain business sustainability and general fairness, individual customers are not entitled to exclusive notification of, or owed access to, store sales antecedently. Orders processed prior to a promotion or sale, items placed on layaway prior to a sale, and payments paid through layaway prior to a sale will not be retroactively adjusted to reflect sale pricing or terms.

Specially Negotiated Deals: Items purchased at specially negotiated discounts, deals or prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer are considered final sale, including rates arranged and agreed upon via Facebook, Instagram, email or any other method. Closing deals at special rates reflects a desire by both parties to reach an expeditious and absolute sale. The intention of specially negotiated discounts, deals or sale prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer, is to eliminate extra expenses and/or use of time and resources to formally list or re-list items per their specific and inherent value-determining qualities, as well as avoid unseen overhead business costs, stocking obligations, and all other disclosed or undisclosed monetary and nonmonetary expenditures.

Pricing: Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to decrease, increase, alter and modify inventory pricing to meet market rarity, demand or value; to offset platform, transaction or seller's fees; to adapt to economic inflation and fluctuation; and to defray specific business expenses. Pricing is the sole discretion of every small business.

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.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.
