La Belle Époque—The Beautiful Age. Christened in retrospect, the prosperity and progress which graced France in the years between two devastating wars was for many a dream come true. Technological advances, cultural liberation, and artistic audacity were hallmarks of this most optimistic era. This collective buoyancy of spirit affected everything from entertainment to fashion and brought with it a more tailored style of dress manufactured from lighter fabrics than the styles of the previous years. A lighter silhouette required more delicate jewelry, and Belle Époque artisans rose fabulously to the occasion.
Masterfully designed from peerless platinum and more than one total carat weight of dazzling diamonds, the marvelous Belle Époque Dinner Ring is a spectacular testament to the artistry of this most hopeful age. The foliate motif of this extraordinary ring is characteristic of Belle Époque’s return to the styles of the French court in the mid-18th century and perfectly suits the array of exquisite diamonds set within the elegant platinum band. Gemstones of strength and tenacity, diamonds are also believed to enhance the imagination and vision of the wearer while empowering creativity and ingenuity—making them the perfect jewels for this remarkable ring crafted during a truly exceptional era. Offering excellent finger coverage as well as a fascinating history, this brilliant dinner ring is sure to enchant wherever it goes.
