Antique Art Deco Navette Ring With Old Cut Diamonds
Antique Art Deco navette ring with old cut diamonds 14kt
This ring is from an era where women began to fight for autonomy and recognition. During the WWI, men had to leave their jobs in order to fight in the war. Gradually more and more women entered the workforce and it brought women a sense of independence. In line with this, fashion had transformed from the relative formality and restriction of the Edwardian era and the war time years to fun and practical styles (think of the ever classy, feminine and unconventional Coco Chanel) that highlighted the freedom of modern women and allowed them to participate in activities that were previously for men only.
The navette shape is graceful, elegant, and sexy at the same time. It is known to compliment the wearer with the illusion of elongated hands. Navette shaped rings are elegant statement pieces that are also very comfortable to wear! Imagine this beauty worn in the 1920s by a flapper ready to go to a speakeasy on a hot summer evening. She would have been the center of attention, wearing an extraordinary ring that would receive many compliments and attention. The motto for this period was to 'live now and forget the past'. Perhaps wearing this flamboyant ring will remind us to celebrate and enjoy the present time...
