Obsession: Diamonds + Onyx


Art Deco was a time of great artistry and design for jewelry. Some of the prettiest combinations were put together during the 1920s and 1930s. The early 1920s produced some elegant filigree rings with gorgeous Old European cut diamonds. Most of these diamonds had some color to them, but as for clarity, they scored high on the scale (VVS-VS). The 1920s transitioned into the 1930s with more geometric ring designs using contrasting colors against the white diamonds (like sapphires, rubies, onyx, or enameling). What jewelry period is your favorite?
