We are delighted with this delicious little Deco number, and once you feast your eyes on it you will be too!
In 1917, David Belais of Belais Brothers submitted his special formula of white gold; the patent was applied for in October of 1918, and approved in 1920. The Belais alloy became so popular, that during the 1920s, white gold was sometimes referred to as “Belais metal.”
The era we now know as “Art Deco” received its moniker from the Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, which was largely dedicated to the jewelry arts. Emphasis was placed on the association of art and modern industry.
Reminding us of a cookie cutter, it has a round ring top featuring cut out shapes accented with diamonds around the circumference, and a central cut out with a lovely diamond, seemingly suspended in mid air, like a sugar sprinkle being dusted over a batch of delectable cookies! A wonderful example of Art Deco style, for those with a palate for the Roaring Twenties!
