During the early years of the Art Deco Period, a New Yorker by the name of George Frederick Kunz published a book titled The Curious Lore of Precious Stones. The author happened to be the lead gemologist at the famed jewelry house Tiffany & Co. He was intrigued by colored gemstones and the role they play in the lives of people around the world. 

 

He wrote of the ancient Romans associated sapphires with Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. He told the story of Arabic magicians long ago who set golden orbs with sapphires in celestial patterns to use during their spells and incantations. He referred to diamonds as “knights of old- brilliant and resistant, an emblem of fearlessness and invincibility”. 

 

During the same decade that Kunz’s book was published, this spectacular Art Deco ring was created. It seems to prove that all the power of stones he wrote of must be real. A large cabochon sapphire with incredible depth is the perfect shade of midnight blue and is the central focus of this antique ring. An architectural themed oval halo houses sparkling diamonds with unique cutouts. The platinum band is simple and sleek as to not detract from the magnificence of the stones. We love how an Art Deco piece such as this can be linear and industrial while also displaying a secret magic of its materials.
