  • Unique find! Only 1 available.

  • Shopping pre-owned is choosing sustainable luxury
  • One-of-a-kind item exclusively curated for you
  • Ships with full insurance + signature confirmation

General Information:

  • US Size:  3.75, a perfectly petite size that renders it an excellent pinky or midi ring; possibly resizable within reason, though we always encourage prospective buyers to consult their trusted jeweler prior to purchase.
  • Total Carat Weight:  0.30 ctw
  • Precious Metal Weight:  1.64 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 14k white gold
  • Dimensions: This ring faces up 9.27 mm north to south (width) and rise about ~3.55 mm from the finger. The band tapers from about ~3.10 at the shoulders just past the asymmetrical diamond face to 2.33 mm at the base of the shank.
  • Weight: A very nice 2.55 grams
  • Markings:  The interior of the band is marked "14K".
  • Era: This ring is believed to hail from sometime between the late 1930s to the mid 1940s, and is noteworthy for its mix of influences: Art Nouveau asymmetry and nature-inspired motif, Art Deco angularites and geometries, and a pared down Mid Century minimalism. Its paisley-like design is at once foliate, dynamic and graphic.
  • Buyer Notes:  This ring would make an exceptionally interesting engagement ring for the offbeat bride, a striking band for stacking or solo wear, or a one of a kind gift for oneself or someone special. Its seven-diamond count makes this ring an updated, bespoke variation on the classic seven-stone "boat" ring made popular during the end of the Victorian period and beginning of the Edwardian period in the UK. It boasts a whimsical aesthetic with great finger coverage for its scale, and a practical low profile to boot.

The Story:

A vibrant show of craftsmanship and whimsy, this retro ring marries some of jewelry history's most dominant influences to create a dazzling showpiece of gold and diamonds. The ring is designed asymmetrically so that it may be worn in either orientation, with a sweeping leaf-like form elegantly wrapping the finger. This form exhibits curvatures and cutouts that accentuate the diamonds mounted therein, and is raised atop the finger with a minimalist gallery that allows light in to refract and sparkle within every diamond.

This ring is creatively unique in its composition, with a crispness, pragmatism and playfulness that takes its cues from the historic periods that both preceded and were contemporaneous to its creation:

  • The leafy 'filigree' at the small of one shoulder as well as the overarching, spirited éclat that bursts around the finger in the ring's rounded, foliate silhouette, both harken to the Art Nouveau period (1890-1910), which popularized divergent, organic qualities to produce dramatic asymmetrical patterns found in nature that incorporated both rigid angles and feminine curves.
  • The triangular forms that punctuate the ring's face and seem to intersect in the teardrop shape evoke the Art Deco period (1918-1937), which favored strong, stylized geometric forms so as to boast a fierce confidence and offer a nod to the synthesization of industry during its era. These delicate, artful triangles also speak to the revival of Middle Eastern and Egyptian motifs within the arts during the 1920s, specifically.
  • While lively in its contours, this ring does embody aspects of the Bauhaus movement (1919-1933), which hinged on the theory that form follows function, thus propelling optimal design to be led by usefulness crafted by the principles of art. In this way, the movement married the fine arts and applied arts. This core concept is displayed in this ring's low profile, finger-hugging design.
  • The combination of outright asymmetry, with streamlined linearity and refined opulence are brilliantly showcased in this ring, a trio of traits that is distinctly Art Moderne (1920-1945). This movement valued innovative experimentation by rejecting historical "musts" and unnecessary frills and ornamentation, therefore capturing the truest essence of an experience through thoughtful design rather than through an overworked representation of what history had long dictated design should be.
  • Chic, sleek and sophisticated describe this ring's Pre-Mid Century (dubbed "retro" in the industry) Modernist character (1939-1949). This movement advanced the standing tenets of Art Moderne by regarding the clarity of design as the best foundation for its practicality. Practicality of design could then be modeled after forms, proportions, colors and attributes found in nature.

With this notion, the ring's design comes full circle, from nature-inspired to man-made, prevailing as an exquisite balance of these two worlds. At first glance, this ring is similar to other vintage rings of asymmetrical design, but when its elements are broken down for consideration, its richer socio-historical context is beautifully revealed. A plethora of stunning design history empowers this petite work of art!

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.
