SOLD Art Deco 18ct Gold Synthetic Ruby & Diamond Zig Zag Ring
A lovely and unusual ring from the Art Deco period, c1920s. The ring is made from 18ct gold and platinum, marked on the inside of the shank, and has an interesting and unusual design at the centre. It is a pretty zigzag outline with a square cut synthetic ruby at the centre. Synthetic gemstones became popular in jewellery from this period as the techniques were honed in creating these lab grown specimens at this time. Synthetic gemstones have all the same properties as their natural counterparts, yet they are man-made. There is a little illusion set diamond on either side of the ruby to complete the trilogy. The ring appears to be entirely original with the top made from platinum with an 18ct yellow gold shank
