At the turn of the nineteenth century, the Art Nouveau and Victorian eras were concluding. In the spirit of World War I, women had come to favor practical clothing with boyish silhouettes and lightweight fabrics fit for an unrestrained, active lifestyle. Of course, new styles of jewelry were needed to complement their new garb. The Art Deco era ushered in clean lines, sharp angles, and ornate geometric designs with a healthy splash of glamor and intrigue. Bold contrast was embraced: black onyx and diamond, ivory and ebony. Potent color, too, was sought after: bright pinks, blues, and greens.
Embodying the era's penchant for simplicity and symmetry, Elizabeth Henry proudly presents the exquisite Moonstone and Ruby Halo ring. This striking piece features a central 1.46 carat moonstone encircled by a halo of calibre-cut natural rubies — true rarities, given the modern prevalence of synthetic rubies. Adding to its allure, shimmering accent diamonds adorn its shoulders.
Crafted in 14K white gold, this ring captures the essence of the Art Deco period, marrying elegance with contemporary flair in a timeless design that resonates with the spirit of its era.
