This fabulous Edwardian Diamond ring is a survivor! While cobalt blue enamel was popular in jewelry in the late 19th century, it rarely survived intact due to its fragility. It was most popular in brooches and pendants, and rarely seen in rings, making this a find for the collector of enamel jewelry. The wide gold “cigar band” is detailed with a woven design of blue glass enamel inlaid into the gold- a process known as champlevé enamel. In effect, this creates a series of diamond-shaped voids, into which are set graduated antique cut Diamonds (a variety of shapes, sizes and qualities, some likely replaced through time). We believe this ring was made closer to 1915, when enamel work had a brief revival in Europe, due to the design of the band, which was more popular in the Edwardian years, and cuts of the Diamonds which are a bit later than the Victorian predecessors. The ring is in remarkable condition, with the enamel largely intact, the Diamonds set securely, and the the ring showing original patina that has taken 100 years to develop.
