Art Nouveau Plique à Jour Diamond Gold Ring

About

"Plique à Jour" is a French term that means "braid letting in daylight". The term refers to the technique in which enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing. This allows light to shine through the transparent or translucent enamel and form a beautiful stained glass like appearance. This incredible ring from the late Art Nouveau era (ca1900-1915) is a fantastic example of the plique-à-jour craft! French in origin, the ring is made of 18kt yellow gold and has a flowing, bypass design which connects at the center. Two fanned shapes rest on either side of the centerpiece of the ring, each detailed with Plique à Jour cells which are yellow, green and gold in color. Old Mine Cut diamonds surround the luscious leaf-like design, framing each shape on all sides. The diamonds are prong and bezel set and have an overall diamond weight of 0.60ctw. The colors of the Plique design are absolutely exquisite and the rare piece is certainly one-of-a-kind. A stunning Art Nouveau ring, it is perfect for any Plique collector and would make a special addition to any ensemble! The ring has a finger size of 7.5, but could be re-sized slightly if necessary. The plique-a-jour centerpiece measures approximately 7/8" tall and 5/8" wide.
