Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This week, Dana and I stumbled on a little gem that has us tied up in knots….  or a bow.  We’re in love with this 18 karat white gold Edwardian ring.  It’s detail after detail of antique excellence.  A hexagon-shaped top holds the center stone – a transitional cut European diamond that weighs approximately .35 carat.  

Elegant filigree decorates both sides of this early 20th century gem.  The detail is precise – featuring a botanical vibe.  This fine wirework is accented with milgrain beading – a classic Edwardian element.  While each of these things are essential to the overall appeal of the ring, it’s those bows that we are so enamored with.

Each shoulder is meticulously decorated with a loosely tied double loop bow.  The asymmetrical trailing tails add feminine and whimsical style.  Bows have been fashionable since the 17th century when the Marquise de Sévigné pinned one at the center of her bodice.  A painting of her wearing a bow brooch in this fashion hangs in the Musée Carnavalet in Paris – celebrating the style and guaranteeing the popularity of the bow for centuries to come. 

These unusual details are the very things that make each antique ring special and uniquely you.  Made in 1915, this beauty would make a perfect engagement ring or a right-hand ring.  Priced at just $825, this sweet bit of bow bling won’t last long.  Call today to make it yours.
