The Art Nouveau movement may have been a short lived one, only lasting from 1890 to 1910, but the jewelry designs from these years were influential and incredibly beautiful. Art Nouveau means “new art”, and that is exactly what was being craved at the time. Jewelers were more like artists than tradesmen, with an intense focus on the lines and aesthetic of jewelry rather than stone quality and price. Styles were whimsical, soft, romantic, and reminiscent of the female form.

Speaking of the female form, the marquise diamond has an interesting origin. In 1700s France, King Louis XV was so enamored with his mistress, Madame de pompadour, that he commissioned the court jeweler to create a new diamond cut that mirrored the shape of her mouth. So 200 years later, when all things feminine were exalted, it makes sense that the artist who made this ring chose this dreamy shape for the center stone.

This Art Nouveau ring features a marquise diamond that is as clear as a cloudless sky, With a flirtatious scrolling ribbon like settings, speckled with old cut diamonds, this stunner is making us blush. Perfect for someone who wants a diamond ring that is anything but basic.
