Tiffany & Co. Freshwater Pearl and Diamond Ring
Dating to circa 1900, this Tiffany & Co. ring is set with a freshwater pearl and diamonds. The ring centers a high domed button pearl with ivory tones, framed by eleven old European-cut diamonds, mounted in platinum-topped 18K gold. This refined and dainty little ring, contrasting the ivory, velvet textured pearl with the hard brilliance and fire of diamonds, exemplifies the Edwardian period's fascination with the white-on-white aesthetic.
