Precious Metal Material: 18k white gold, as stamped, though our shop equipment tests the gold as ever so slightly higher than 75% (750) which is the threshold for 18 karat gold
Weight: A very comfortably lightweight ~1.3 grams
Dimensions: 2.10 mm north to south (width) x 1.60 mm rise from the finger (depth; measurement taken at the center of the ring’s face); band tapers to ~1.40 mm width and ~1.20 mm rise at the base of the shank
Markings: The interior of the shank reads “PAT. 1792422” followed by “LBP to EPB 6 - 20 -31” and a partially polished off “18K”. The patent mark is registered to the Granat Bros., who are very well known and much revered for their fabulous designs that dominated the jewelry scene between the 1920s and 1950s, alongside the top-tier ‘Greats’ of the jewelry industry. They patented many designs, some successfully and others less so. Some of the company’s most radical designs included a campaign for men’s engagement rings that corresponded with their partners’, and an engineered locking wedding set in which the engagement ring and wedding band would affix to one another. Though the Granat Bros. were eventually engulfed into Zale’s, their original jewelry designs continue to be much beloved today. Read more about this jewelry house in the written description.
Era: This ring dates to the height of the Art Deco movement, circa 1930, and is dated specifically as being gifted and first owned in 1931. Beyond this inscription, and what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enable us to determine, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range or history than this without knowledge of the piece’s exact provenance.
Buyer Notes: This ring is as chic and handsome as they come, a slender and rather minimalist rendition of classic geometric Art Deco aestheticism. The stones are extremely bright and lively, adding a kiss of sparkle to this jewel’s elegant appearance. This piece is a gleaming example of, not only Deco styling, but also of the superior design work of the famous Granat Bros. Prospective buyers, please be aware that this ring can technically be resized by your preferred jeweler post-purchase, though the original hand-engraved interior inscription and patent mark stamp would likely be obscured or lost in the resizing process. If the interior inscription is an important element to you, this factor should be noted and weighed if resizing would be required.

In an explosion of glittering rainbows of color, this antique diamond wedding band hails from the early 1930s at the height of the Art Deco period. This ring was fabricated by the Granat Brothers out of San Francisco, and even bears a patent number stamped inside the shank that indicates its exceptional maker and design.
This ring is slim in width, hugging the finger in a sleek low-profile construction, with very understated milgrain accenting the incised perimeter that outlines the shank. Such detailing maintains as much interest as the antique diamonds themselves, and is a clean design feature that feels just as modern and refined as it does antique. The diamonds herein are of superb color and clarity, boasting a bright whiteness that refracts color and light and a vivid transparency with no visible inclusions up to 90x magnifications. Their excellence is a wonderful complement to the romance of the antique origins of the band.
Brothers Leo and Joseph Granat established their first store around 1905 in Stockton, California, a location that also happened to be a nexus of the nearly decade-long California Gold Rush that occured just fifty years prior. Befitting indeed, the brothers went to business manufacturing jewelry and offering repair services. By 1922, they opened their chief storefront in San Francisco, and in 1927, opened a robust retail outlet which also housed a working studio where the company continued to manufacture inventory.
The company was a fascinating one, reportedly the reigning jewellers of the midwest’s jewelry mecca at the time, Detroit, Michigan, which was host to many prominent jewelers aside from Granat. On a nostalgic note, one of the company’s charming seasonal advertisements from the early 1920s announced that a 0.50 ctw diamond engagement ring would make the ideal Christmas surprise for just $285. Today, though, this is the equivalent of approximately $4,566.70.
The Granat Bros. were very successful, accruing tons of accolades during their prime. By the earliest years of the 1960s, they boasted nine outlets to their name. However, by the fall of 1961, they sold their retail to Zales, which continued to use the Granat Bros. jewelry dies through the 1980s. Today, Granat jewelry is extremely desirable and collected by lovers of antique jewelry and enthusiasts of the trade’s storied past. This sweet band is a lovely example of Granat design, with bold angles popular during the Deco period and a timeless affect that continues to inspire today.

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.

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.

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.
