Set of 8 Art Deco Paste Cocktail Rings

Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1930s/40s

A collection of 8 Art Deco rings, set with coloured paste gemstones and modelled sterling silver (some gold plated). They date to the 1930s/40s and, although they are basically costume jewellery, the detail and craftsmanship is quite remarkable - with finely openworked galleries, millegrain detailing, and all of the ultra-chic stylistic qualities of the Art Deco era. The stones are coloured to represent particular gemstones: aquamarine, zircon, sapphire, emerald, diamond, chalcedony - however, the coral orb is natural.
