Bold forward movement. Adornment as rebellion. Art Deco jewelry was never simply about looking pretty. Dramatic contrasts and geometric lines highlight the ethos of the era as many women refused to stay bound by society’s expectations for them. In having the courage to stand out, these women became a force for changing society.
In the wake of the Great War, industry and gender roles began to change. A fascination with machines gave rise to jewelry highlighting sleek lines and vivid colors. Women who had left hearth and home to work in factories were not about to diminish their shine simply because men had returned from war. En masse, they began declaring freedom from the old way of doing and thinking, and the jewelry they chose to wear reflects their brazen belief in themselves.
Standing out is what this Art Deco Onyx & Old Mine Cut Diamond Ring was created to do. The black onyx set into white gold is the perfect canvas for highlighting the dazzle of the rose diamonds which center this piece, while the filigree work and old mine cut diamonds enhance the allure of this striking ring. Much like the Art Deco movement itself, this ring is more than simply a beautiful work of art. It is liberation on display.
