General Information:

  • US Size: A petite 3.25, perfect as a pinky ring or midi ring, and able to be resized post-purchase if so desired
  • Total Precious Metal Weight: 1.58 dwt/ozt, inclusive of both gold and silver precious metal
  • Total Stone Weight: Professionally estimated by formula to be 0.38 ctw (please see breakdown below)
  • Precious Metal Material: 14k yellow gold and silver
  • Weight: A very nice weight of 2.46 grams
  • Dimensions: The face of the ring measures 16.00 mm north to south (length) x 11.11 mm east to west (width); band tapers from 1.3 mm at the pinched shoulders and tapers to 1.25 mm at the base of the shank. The tallest point of the ring rises 4.18 mm from the finger (depth).
  • Markings: This ring is not marked.
  • Era: This diamond ring is believed to date to the earliest years of the 20th century, specifically from between 1900-1920. It exhibits the traits of Art Nouveau, Jugendstil and liberal Edwardian design.
  • Buyer Notes: This ring is a wonderful example of Art Nouveau design, with an emphasis on thoughtful composition, natural inspiration and feminine curvatures. Its materialities and components render it a somewhat curious jewel, yet also add to its intrigue and wonder. The face of the ring is modeled in silver, and backed/shanked with 14k yellow gold. The piece boasts a time-earned patina that is considered quite desirable by collectors, and so has been left exactly as-is. This patina and light oxidization may be buffed and polished away by the next caretaker if so desired. Keep in mind each diamond’s individuality and note that no two diamonds are matched; this ring was designed to have variances amongst stones so as to celebrate their singular characters. A perfect pinky or midi ring at its current smaller size, this ring may most certainly be enlarged post-purchase to suit another finger. It is an heirloom piece with over 120 years of history exuding from every angle, every curve and every facet.

The Story:

In historic glory, this romantic and storied jewel hails from the early 20th century. The ring is primarily fabricated in 14k yellow gold, while its face is topped in silver, a common choice for jewelry from the 18th century Georgian years through the turn of the 20th century. In effect, the silver proved a more durable material for the face of jewelry, as silver is slightly less ductile and impressionable than gold. Additionally, silver set gems have a brighter visual appearance than those set in gold, given that gold can optically warm up diamonds’ colors. As such, it is very common to find historic jewelry that boasts this metal duality.

The ring is designed in a vertical orientation, the composition nearly spanning knuckle to knuckle. A trilogy of primary diamonds centers the design, the diamonds arranged in graduated order from smallest to largest. The heights of these three diamonds is contiguous with their sizing order, with the largest diamond peaking at the tallest height above the finger. The two larger diamonds of the three are mounted within substantial bezel settings, while the smallest of the three is held with delicate prongs as if a rosette window atop a double-arched pane. Similarly, the two outermost diamonds that bookend this central sparkly spine are prong set as well.

The shapeliness of the ring is modeled in the aesthetic tastes of the Art Nouveau and Jugendstil designs that were sweeping decorative, fine and building arts at the end of the 1800s and into the nascent years of the 1900s. This creative movement may have lasted less than two decades, but its artful influence has remained remarkably strong across all kinds of creative fields; the bold and sinuous linearities recall curves found in Mother Nature, and elevate organicism to the forefront of elegance. History places this ring’s origin at the turn of the century, though the diamonds present appear to have mostly been replaced since then. Save for the Swiss cut, the faceting matrices of all the diamonds date to the 1920s or later. We may never know the reason for this discrepancy, though its mysteriousness is just as compelling as the firecracker light the diamonds emanate.

As is true of Art Nouveau jewelry silhouettes, the outline of this ring takes cues from the form of insects, wings and budding flowers. A stretch of the Nouveau movement preferred the serendipitous asymmetry of nature over the man-made precision of symmetry, and this ring’s composition presents itself as symmetrical from east to west and asymmetrical from north to south. This being so, it may be flipped to enjoy at either orientation, gifting the wearer options. The piece’s shoulders are pinched where they flank the silver face, and softly reverse-taper toward the base of the shank. This ring is exceptionally elegant, and simply exudes soulful whimsy characteristic of a bygone era and its hushed chapters we will never know.

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.

More information on these, and more, topics may be found in the shop policies.

All layaway terms may be found here, and all shop policies may be found here.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.
