Colombian Emerald and Diamond Ring


This elegant Art Deco ring is centered with three-carat, classic emerald-cut Colombian emerald, set against colorless diamonds and platinum. The high-style geometric 1920s-era mount frames the emerald with sharp lines of sparkling round diamonds on canted planes, contrasting with arched shoulders, set with diamond baguettes. With its miniature references to period art and architecture, this brilliantly satiny green ring is a strong statement of Art Deco style and proportion that colorfully graces and elongates hand and the finger.
