My Ring goes perfect with this Cartier Deco Ruby and Diamond Neckalce going to auction!
Headlining the sale is Lot 1092, a magnificent art deco ruby and diamond necklace, by Cartier, circa 1925, with an estimate of HK$3,000,000 – 4,000,000.
Featuring approximately 20.00ct of rubies and 30.00ct of diamonds, the necklace’s linear outline and geometric design are classic examples of the art deco period. This important necklace was illustrated in the book “Bijoux Art Deco” by renowned French author Sylvie Raulet.
The Art Deco period is one of the most popular and enduring design periods in the history of jewellery. The style reflected the flamboyant and playful attitudes of the era and gave birth to forms and motifs that continue to live on today. Defined by geometric forms and bold colours, the Art Deco jewellery style was in sharp contrast to the jewels of preceding periods. Diamonds were extremely popular in the Art Deco period and were often accompanied by the bright colours of rubies, sapphires and emeralds.
While the Art Deco period covers the early 1920s through 1935, its influence extends all the way through the 1950s and 1960s and indeed to the current day. The Cartier ruby and diamond necklace offered at the Bonhams sale bears witness to the iconic Art Deco style and is imbued with the Maison’s savoir-faire.
Reminiscent of a work of art, this Egyptian revival necklace features a series of fifteen cushion-shaped rubies graduating in size to the centre, each within a geometric surround of brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds forming a tapering plaque, the back chain of shield and circular linking pavé set with similarly cut diamonds, the largest to the centre.
